About Us

Ideate. Collaborate. Create.

Interested in innovation? Then the sandbox is for you. The sandbox provides a creative and collaborative space to engineering students involved in small projects, pre-professional competitions and entrepreneurial endeavours. Apply your technical knowledge, develop your hands-on experience and join a community of innovators!  

The Sandbox will provide you with the space and equipment that your project needs. 
Students in the space can take advantage of group meeting area and presentation equipment. Multiple design stations provide a suitable spot to spend many hours working  on a design. Finally, to help bring a project to life the room has electrical workstations and a tool bench. Members of the Sandbox will be given storage space for their projects and the ability to access the space at all hours.
