Makerspace

The USQ Makerspace is a community space for all students and staff to come together to make and create. The makerspace can be used for class projects, student clubs, to test an idea you might have or just for fun. Currently, the makerspace has a 3D Printer, a badge maker, hand tooling, craft materials and much more.

The makerspace is open during Library opening hours.

Get involved

The USQ Makerspace community welcomes your participation and ideas. Visit the space, share your expertise as a peer mentor, offer a workshop or activity, donate or suggest resources for the space, organise a class session or join the USQ Maker club at usqmakerclub@gmail.com.

Getting creative with digital content

USQ Library supports the use and sharing of content made available with an open culture licence, such as Creative Commons or Public Domain. This allows other users to revise, redistribute, repurpose, and share the resulting work. Library staff can help you use, find and share Open Access and Open Education resources.

The Maker Kits Project

In 2018 the USQ Library Makerspace is offering 120 free kits as part of a Student Amenity Fee Funded grant. Four different types of kits will be offered over the year: Arduino & Sensors, Wearable Technology, Obstacle Avoiding Robots and LED Matrix kits. This is a great opportunity to learn key maker skills in electronics, microcontrollers and coding.

Open to USQ students residing in Australia, in any study mode. You must submit an expression of interest in order to participate, and kits will be allocated on a first come basis. You are only able to receive one type of kit.

Expressions of interest have now closed for this round. If you’d like to learn about Arduino there will be workshops on each campus coming up in May and June for those who missed out on this maker kits project round. See the Library Events page for more information.
