MakerSpace is an open-ended club for innovation that will be running concurrently with our popular Tuesday after school club, Creator Club.

High school aged MakerSpace participants will have the opportunity to learn new skills through rotating Skill Up sessions and will be provided support to navigate the Design Thinking process. A wide range of technologies and spaces will be available to all participants to bring their proposed project to life, including but not limited to subtractive manufacturing, additive manufacturing, printers, video editing suite, and our production grade podcast studio (you can read more about our facilities and technology here).

MakerSpace is open to limited number of partner school students and teachers. As part of the registration, students will need to complete a project proposal, providing as much detail about their project as they are able to (you do not need to have a project to apply if you do not have one).

Term 4 sessions are running every Tuesday from October 4th to November 22nd, the cost is free to partner school students for small scale projects*.

* Participants may be required to purchase materials or equipment that is not available at the Tech School. Personal stock and equipment is the responsibility of the purchaser.
