Join the APEGBC Victoria Branch for a tour of Victoria Makerspace, and a brief introduction of how making introduces people to engineering. Makerspace is a member operated shared space where people come togehter and collaborate while sharing tools, resources and knowledge. Please below for more details.

One tool can be effectively duplicated many times over by sharing it, in the same way that our learning experiences are shared. Some of the equipment and tools currently at the Victoria Makerspace include a CNC mill, two 3D printers and a laser cutter as well as other metal and wood working tools.

Demonstrations of some of the equipment will take place, more details to follow. For more information, visit the Victoria Makerspace webpage.
