Small-scale manufacturing is key to improving the economy in the Anderson, Indiana, area, according to Corey Sharp, director of Purdue Polytechnic Anderson. Local entrepreneurs can use the P3 Makerspace in Flagship East, home of Purdue Polytechnic Anderson, to ready their unique products for manufacturing.
To provide opportunities for the community to see the woodworking, metalworking and 3-D printing tools available for their use, Purdue Polytechnic will host open houses for the P3 Makerspace from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on July 13, July 20, Aug. 10 and Aug. 17.
“Where could we be in Anderson with a strong makerspace and strong community?” asked Sharp. Community access to the P3 Makerspace “helps fulfill our land grant mission by helping provide an affordable way to give people entry into mechanics and agriculture.”
