Students, faculty and staff attended a Tuesday open house at The Dr. Welch Workshop: A Makerspace at Penn College (Room 104 of the Carl Building Technologies Center), enjoying free food and refreshments and learning about all of the great things they can accomplish there. In addition to kicking off the facility’s second year, the event ushers in a full slate of weekly training sessions on a variety of interesting topics. Watch PCToday for weekly announcements of the Fall 2019 training sessions, to be held from 6-7 p.m. Thursdays through Nov. 21.
