Kingborough Makerspace

A new opportunity to make, create and innovate is coming to Kingborough following a successful grant application by Council to the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.

Kingborough Council is collaborating with the Hobart Hackerspace and Kingston LINC to create a place for imagination, learning, making, creaking, tinkering, exploring and discovering, using a combination of hi-tech and low-tech materials and resources.

The project will focus on concepts such as robotics, coding, circuits and electronics, and will involve activities with computers (building and dismantling), 3D printing and design, laser cutting, soldering and traditional woodwork and metal work with a digital focus.

Experts in these fields are being recruited from Hobart Hackerspace, LINC and the Peter Underwood Centre for Educational Attainment at the University of Tasmania. Workshops will be organised to run after school, weekends and in school holidays for young people under the age of 18.

The objective of Maker Spaces is to encourage practical skills, creativity and entrepreneurial thinking for young people in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
