Welcome to the Nest!
The Makerspace at Phillips Academy, nicknamed “the Nest,” is where all members of the community can come together to explore, collaborate, create, and share. Dedicated to providing a positive learning space, the Nest encourages new perspectives, new ideas, and new ways to learn.
The space offers hands-on learning and guidance to anyone who walks through the door, whether they are looking to design a prosthetic hand or a prom dress. It has equipment that can’t be found anywhere else on campus, including a laser cutter, a vinyl cutter, and several 3-D printers. NestED, the Makerspace’s speaker series, invites makers, educators, artists, and innovators to come speak, demo their projects, and provide inspiration. You can see some of our upcoming events below.
The Nest is dedicated to the “do something” mindset and we are certain that you’ve got ideas. Want to learn how to use some of the equipment? Curious about incorporating design-thinking or something maker-y into your class? Get in touch! We’d love to help bring your project to life.
