The goal of the Makerspace is to enable students to create new digital artifacts and materials, adapt new digital tools, processes, and methods and participate in innovative projects, communities, and discussions.

This is accomplished by: 

Using digital desktop tools to create designs for new products and prototype them (digital DIY).

You can book a training session via the Library training and Makerspace training calendar to learn how to optimally use Makerspace equipment and tools and also how to work according to Makerspace safety guidelines.
