ANU MakerSpace

Doing is a different way of thinking

The ANU MakerSpace is an initiative by the Research School of Physics and Engineering, where we know people learn by doing. The MakerSpace is open to all members of the ANU community. We believe that inter-disciplinary environments breed creativity, and that everyone has something they can teach everyone else.

We are growing a community and a space that is accessible to absolutely anyone from ANU, staff & student alike, to learn how and then build and make anything to support their education, research or hobbies. A learning commons that forges creativity and stimulates the curious mind, in a mixing pot of disciplines and methodology.

A MakerSpace…

  • Where undergraduates, graduates, teachers and researchers from all disciplines come together; that all but demands frequent interaction.
  • With real research tools, the knowledge, and the resources for people to experiment, investigate, work on projects, and solve problems.
  • Where knowledge effortlessly flows between peers, teachers, staff and academics alike. A truly research-led environment, providing students the confidence to be life-long self-learners.

ANU MakerSpace is run by the Physics Education Centre and is located at Physics North, Building 38, Science Road.
