The Makerspace supports the UTSC Library’s core values by offering space and services to the UTSC community that fosters knowledge creation through access to emerging technologies focused on making. We provide a safe, welcoming space for participants to experiment and be knowledge creators by supporting critical thinking and creativity through active learning opportunities in physical and digital making.
