Appreciating our space

November 29th, 2017 by Library Makers Category: Articles

We love our Makerspace’s new home, and the extra space has enabled us to do so much more.

Wai from Curtin Student Guild club AVRN Curtin values the Makerspace as a platform for discussion and education about immersive technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality. He said it is useful as a space for collaboration with other individuals, clubs and organisations. “The larger venue is fantastic, as there is more space for crafting, making, hacking and programming; which helps bring in people in to take part in our activities.”

Associate Professor Artur Lugmayr from the School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts uses the Makerspace for student works as part of lectures and creative workshops. He says it is particularly well suited for design thinking sessions due to the atmosphere of the space and equipment available.

Curtin would like to pay respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members of our community by acknowledging the traditional owners of the land on which the Perth campus is located, the Whadjuk people of the Nyungar Nation; and on our Kalgoorlie campus, the Wongutha people of the North-Eastern Goldfields.
