Using a makerspace model, MakerSpace Brampton combines manufacturing equipment and technology with community and education to help users to design, prototype and create manufactured works that wouldn’t be possible to create with the resources available to individuals working alone. It’s also a great place to learn how to use cutting edge tools, and develop 21st century job skills.
