MakerSpace Brampton is a joint initiative between the City of Brampton, Sheridan College, and Brampton Library to foster creativity, innovation and exploration in a safe and accessible learning environment. 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.
Sheridan College Faculty of Applied Science and Technology’s Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT), Brampton Library, and the City of Brampton Economic Development Office have partnered to support the MakerSpace Brampton initiative where residents, students, entrepreneurs and visitors can come together and collaborate while sharing tools, resources and knowledge.
