ANU Makerspace

The ANU Makerspace is an environment that brings students and academics together with the resources, tools, and knowledge to work on projects. The space offers students the opportunity to learn and transfer skills while solving problems in an active research-led way. The ANU Makerspace forges creativity, stimulates the curious minds, and is an interdisciplinary learning space in higher education.
