At Singapore Polytechnic Library, Makerspace was created in 2013 to encourage activity-based learning and to transform the library’s image from a place in which resources are consumed to that of a place where works are created.
The space is located
in the Library, open to staff and students from all disciplines, from beginners to enthusiasts. Workshops on a variety of technologies (e.g. 3D printing, Arduino, LEDs, 3D design, programming, video making) are run regularly. Other types of programmes
include out-of-classroom experience, bootcamp, tech talks, demos of emerging technologies and project advisory service to students. Resources offered include DIY kits, tools, books, videos and online platforms to promote sharing of reusable objects.
To inspire discovery, foster interaction and build connections, we connect our users to maker communities beyond our campus. Being a place of natural convergence of curriculums and communities, Makerspace offers a supportive and non-intimidating
atmosphere for discovery, experimentation and co-creation.
We welcome everyone from all disciplines to explore what Makerspace has to offer. We pledge to be inclusive of ideas and people, and also aspire to be a fertile ground for new discoveries
and champions of the Maker Movement.
If you have an idea or project to share, please get in touch with our Fab Lab staff. We would be happy to connect your creativity to an audience.
