MCC students and community members will have access to 3D printers and scanners,
laser cutting and etching, robotics and other state-of- the-art equipment when the new
fabrication laboratory (or Fab Lab) opens at the downtown campus in January.
A portion of the Downtown Center is expected to open this fall.
The center recently received $7,000 from the Grand Haven Area Community
Foundation and $30,000 from the Muskegon County Community Foundation
The prototype development center will be part of the Rooks/Sarnicola Institute for
Entrepreneurial Studies. The institute will be physically linked to the college's downtown
center being developed in the former Muskegon Chronicle building to house comprehensive
applied technology programs, such as welding, CAD and plastics technology.
