The Engineering Outreach Office’s brand new Makerspace week provides students with the opportunity to step into the workspace of today’s engineers and walk in their shoes at the University of Toronto’s state of the art Fabrication Lab. In this lab students will be equipped with everything from power tools to 3D printers in order to take on creative projects as they are tasked with solving real-life engineering challenges. At the end of this week long experience, students will emerge feeling that they have an idea of what it takes to be an engineer in the 21st century and a sense of accomplishment when approaching some of the world’s most pressing issues.
Week 1 – July 29, 2019 – August 2, 2019
Week 2 – August 12, 2019 – August 16, 2019
Time: 9 AM – 4 PM
Location: Fabrication Lab at Myhal Centre for Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship, University of Toronto (St. George Campus)
