UOW MakerSpace: About the MakerSpace


Welcome to the UOW MakerSpace!

The MakerSpace is a place to safely use tools and equipment to explore your creativity and test your technical skills. It's open to all students and staff to walk through and engage with.

  • Learn to use new tech and tools
  • Put your knowledge and skills to practice
  • Meet like-minded makers

Have you ever wanted to explore the laneways of Morocco without getting on a plane? Or create your own game controlled by a banana? Or make something out of nothing on a 3D printer? Now you can.

The MakerSpace is a SAF funded space that officially opened its doors on the 15th of May 2017.

Want to get involved?

You can become a MakerSpace mentor! Our mentors support students and staff with our equipment and communicate with maker groups and workshops.

Becoming a mentor is a great way to keep on top of current technologies and safe work practices, plus enhances your workplace skills in communication, teamwork and customer service.

Find out more about MakerSpace mentors and how to apply for the volunteer role online.
