InnovationSpaces

VR Space

The Lake Forest College InnovationSpaces give Foresters access to a series of custom creative spaces where they can enter virtual worlds, create 3-D prints, record audiobooks and electronic music, construct theater stages, network in a community of entrepreneurs dedicated to innovation, print photos, and explore, extend, and expand their skills through a series of experiential spaces.


  • VirtualSpace . 

    The VirtualSpace (DO 212) is the hub for virtual reality, green screen, and 360-degree explorations. Equipped with the amazing HTC Vive systems and a full green-screen production studio, the VirtualSpace lets students and faculty engage with and produce immersive media while exploring the latest developments in virtual technologies. Don’t just think about the future; help create it!


  • MakerSpace . 

    Build, Create, Invent, Discover! Supported by the Technology Resource Center, the MakerSpace (DO 227) provides a DIY technology-rich creation, inspiration, and prototyping environment. This new space is equipped to facilitate collaborative design efforts, and the “star” of the space is a Flashforge CreativePro dual-extrusion 3D printer with biodegradable PLA 1.75mm filament available in multiple colors.  We also offer a Qiilu Micro Engraving Machine, and a Jintai JT-18 Vacuum Forming Machine.

    Stay tuned for programming and workshops related to our design instruments and devices, as well as future technology acquisitions that will blow (or 3D print!) your mind. We are still developing policies and procedures for access. Request information using this form or contact makerspace@lakeforest.edu.
