The maker movement is in full force at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Carolina’s Be a Maker Network is connecting students, faculty and staff to design and create physical objects in makerspaces equipped with tools for woodworking, metalworking and digital fabrication.

In this week’s podcast, we talk about the maker movement at Carolina with Rich Superfine, the Taylor-Williams Distinguished Professor of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Sciences, and the director of the Be a Maker Network.

Join UNC every Wednesday for the University’s podcast as we talk with Carolina’s newsmakers and experts. Each episode, students, faculty, staff and alumni will discuss what’s going on in classrooms, labs and around campus, and how it pertains to the local, national and international headlines.
