About this FieldTrip

Get your hands onto some making! When you arrive, we’ll reveal the secret design task, which could be anything from a bridge that can support a small fake dog to a car that can drive an egg safely to its destination.

You will be put into teams of 4-5, given a bag of supplies and 30 minutes to complete the challenge.

Then it’s competition time! Our panel of judges will rank you on the three S’s: Successful, Stylish and Story to win the coveted MakerLabs Design Challenge Trophy.

About MakerLabs MakerLabs is made up of 42,000 square feet of workshops, studios and common areas. The communal working areas include: a wood shop, metal shop, CNC router table, laser cutters, sewing machines and an electronics area. Each tool and work area have a corresponding class to teach people how to safely use each tool.

A strong maker community has been cultivated at MakerLabs, where we exchange knowledge, help each other and collaborate. MakerLabs has communal areas for working, hanging out and cooking, as well as a culture of open concept, yet private, studio spaces so makers can be inspired by what is going on around them.
