The UBC Okanagan Makespace is an inclusive makerspace that aims to serve the needs of students, staff, and faculty to be makers.

The space functions as an open space to encourage design thinking, prototyping, and testing and will serve as a hub for innovation, cross-discipline collaboration and entrepreneurship for members of the UBC Okanagan campus.

Our Vision

To bring together students, staff, and faculty to incubate, design, prototype and fabricate ideas.

The vision for the UBC Okanagan makerspace is to provide access to many tools and technologies including hand tools, 3D printers, CNC hotwire cutter, multi-axial CNC rotors, laser cutter, 3D scanner, electronics tools, and modelling/simulation tools. This environment will provide a facilitated work space to foster creative thinking. The space opened in November 2017 and a more formal launch is anticipated for early 2018.

We would love to hear from you
