Inworks has suspended all prototyping lab operations for the remainder of the Spring semester pursuant to official University policies. Our students, staff and faculty are all hard at work transitioning to best serve our classes and community remotely. Check out the following while we work on developing further resources.

To our students, community members, and collaborators:

Sorry we had to part so abruptly. Normal operations at Inworks have drastically changed, and we’re hard at work to find a path forward in the wake of COVID-19. Our mission remains the same: To impart skills and habits of mind that allow people to collaboratively create impactful solutions to human problems.   
Although we closed our prototyping lab doors in mid-March, we haven’t been idle. We have spun off an initiative called Make4Covid that leverages the distributed network of Colorado-based designers, makers, and manufacturers to create face shields for healthcare professionals. Our downtown lab has become a 3D-printing nexus in collaboration with University of Colorado Denver’s Mechanical Engineering department, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Comcast Media and Technology Center.   
Downtown prototyping lab resources are in the process of being adapted to remote users. We feel strongly that all our users should have the opportunity to learn how to design prototypes and program electronic circuits, so online content is being created to fulfill that goal. Inworks’ operations on the Anschutz Medical Campus have transitioned to remote-only, and our prototyping lab in the Strauss Health Sciences Library is closed for the time being; however, we continue to design, prototype, print, and collaborate off-site, and encourage you to reach us at inworks@ucdenver.edu.  
Despite the current stay-at-home orders and self-isolation, Inworks continues to be your resource for creating what your intellect imagines. Your Inworks badge and your credentials will be intact when we open our doors again, and we will extend free workshop access to all current Inworks students for the remainder of the year. 

All the best,

The Inworks Team
