uOttawa Maker Mobile – Creativity on the go

Follow us

As part of its outreach program, the Faculty of Engineering is proud to present Ottawa’s first-ever Maker Mobile, available to come to your community!

The uOttawa Maker Mobile is a Makerspace on wheels; traveling from location to location on a full-time basis, it carries equipment such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and Arduino microcontrollers. Using the latest technologies, the Maker Mobile delivers fun hands-on learning activities to schools, libraries and community centers across the region, complementing the school curriculum.

Our goal is to encourage creativity, problem-solving skills and interest in technology among everyone in the community. From September 2016 to June 2017, we have reached a total of 408 schools, over 19,200 kids and have given over 800 workshops in the National Capital Region.
