Douglas College opens high-tech workshop for students

April 27, 2015

Douglas College has opened its new Maker Lab, a high-tech workshop that allows students to experiment with design ideas and modelling. The Lab is equipped with 3D printers, circuitry, and hand tools that allow students to fabricate models and prototypes of their designs. Students can also use the space for meetings and collaboration. “While our Maker Lab initiative is still in an early stage of development, it has already become a hub for students looking to engage with emerging technologies. Not only can they come here to tinker with such technology, but they can also explore its place in society and culture,” said David N Wright, Coordinator, Research and Innovation at Douglas. Douglas News
