Curiosum Makerspace

In Curiosum Makerspace you can challenge your creative side by constructing, programming or working with design. You explore new materials or let something used get new life in a new form (to "hack"). Science and art go hand in hand and together we challenge the boundaries and share knowledge.

The first Makerspace of 2023 on January 11!

NEWS! Makerspace is open to the public every Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m.

If you are over 19 years old, you can secure your access to Makerspace by booking here for each occasion. There are 12 bookable seats.

Makerspace visitors have access to Makerspace on floor 2, and depending on availability, a laser cutter and 3D scanner.

There is a limit of 20 visitors at each occasion. If you are over 19, you can secure your place by booking before each event (see link above). If you are between 13 and 19 years we have drop-in as long as there are available seats.

Curiosum Makerspace - part of the global Maker movement

Curiosum Makerspace is a place to learn, share, and create and also a part of the global Maker movement.

Manufacturing is being digitized and democratized. Digitally controlled machines are getting cheaper, the open source software to control the machines is getting better and more people are learning to use these technologies. All this means that we can talk about a kind of revolution - where more and more people have knowledge and access to manufacturing machines and thereby have the opportunity to create things themselves.

Two important components that make this possible are meeting places and sharing culture. Meeting places are important for connecting people with the same interests, it can be a physical place such as Curiosum Makerspace or a digital arena on the internet. The Internet makes it possible to connect people all over the globe with odd, unusual or special interests in different forums where you can learn from each other, together.

All these physical and digital places are permeated by the sharing culture that the Maker movement is made up of. We live in an exciting time where you can only dream about what will be invented and created and it can become a reality tomorrow…

What exactly would you like to create?
