Memorial’s Makerspace – part of The Commons

 

PURPOSE:
A makerspace is a place where people can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials. Our Memorial University makerspace will be physically flexible and will contain equipment & supplies that will allow students to explore their creativity. It will give students the resources to conceive an idea and bring it into the physical world. In addition, it will allow students to take two or more seemingly unrelated ideas and combine them, encouraging true innovation.
