Teen Makerspace Program

Applications are now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted an application. Selected applicants will be contacted on Thursday, October 12.

If you can dream it, you can build it!

It’s time to break out the laser cutter and get those creative juices flowing. The Science Garage’s Teen Makerspace Program is a FREE program that gives high school students the power to create the projects of their dreams!

Students with successful applications will embark on an incredible two-month journey, where they will combine their love of science and art to create 4 unique STEAM projects. Collaborating with resident experts, students will have the opportunity to use their imagination, reclaimed materials and the following tools to make their projects a reality:

• Watch your creations come to life using our 3D printer

• Make precision cuts and engravings for your project with our laser cutter

• Incorporate circuits into your projects with electronics

The program will culminate in a showcase event where students will present their projects to TELUS World of Science - Edmonton guests in December 2017.

Program Start Date

Friday, October 13, 2017

Program Goals

• TELUS World of Science – Edmonton Staff will mentor students in the design and creation of projects using 3D printing, laser cutter technology, electronics, and reclaimed materials

• Students will gain insight into how arts and science come together in creative enterprises and in the careers that blend the two fields

• Students and TELUS World of Science – Edmonton Staff will work together to develop new maker projects for The Science Garage to share with science centre visitors


Upon completion of 4 maker projects that meet acceptance criteria, attendance and participation in the project showcase, students will receive a $250 honorarium as a reward for creating 4 viable projects that The Science Garage can use in programs with future guests.
