Noosa and Cooroy Makerspaces – where the magic is in the making

 

Noosa Library service's Makerspaces are designed to provide welcoming areas for making, learning and socialising.  Users can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover, using a variety of tools with a digital focus.  The space hosts new and emerging technology such as 3D Printers, a Virtual Reality system, sewing machines, photographic and audio-visual digitizing equipment and a range of different robotics technology.

We encourage users to be creative and learn through experimentation, which will spark new ideas and new ways of thinking.  By seeing and sharing what other people have made, new concepts and designs can be generated.  Our future will benefit from people who with these new ideas and new ways of thinking, can solve problems with technology.

If you are interested in being involved, there are a range of different makerspace workshops  that will inspire you to be creative with technology or become a Makerspace Member and be able to use the facilities independently.
