What is 'Makersplayce'?
Fontys Applied Sciences, School of Engineering is one of the founding fathers of the Make Impact Consortium, initiated by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and therefore one of the hubs of Europe. The Student Participation Council proposed a creative, technical workshop to work in after school hours. This idea was developed into the name Makersplayce, one of the Makerspaces of Engineering, by students of Fontys University of Applied Sciences, School of Engineering.
What does Makersplayce do?
Makersplayce is a playground, run by and made for students, where all STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) elements melt together. Students of Engineering have the opportunity to develop creative ideas by using a big variety of machines, knowledge and tools. There are also plenty of chances to connect between businesses and students at Makersplayce. In a world where creativity and technology are essential, it’s important that students get stimulated. At Makersplayce, they are challenged to step outside the box. Think brighter!
How does it work for students?
As an Engineering student, subscribing as a Makersplayce member is free of charge. The use of machines is free, the material you use will be available for a low price.
