Event description

Description

It’s National Engineering Month in March! Come out and learn about the various applications of engineering technology. This month is all about expanding our skills and showcasing our abilities to “engineer” or “innovate”.

What better way to learn about all the various services within the Makerspace by creating your own "Useless Box" and then transforming it into a “Useful Box”. This novelty device will demonstrate laser cutting, 3D printing, soldering and finishing skills all which are tools of the Makerspace. The challenge is to innovate this device into something more practical or more complex; whether it be enhancing the mechanics or general improvements. The goal is to be creative!

Once Completed we will end the month with a small design showcase; where our winner will have their final creation displayed across our Social Media. We look forward to seeing all your innovative designs and hope to spark the “engineer” in you.

This workshop will have multiple parts, in order to benefit most in the design process, it is recommended to attend all session if possible. Any inquiries please feel free to contact the Workshop Coordinator, Mihir Mistry (mmist066@uottawa.ca).
