Currently we have a room in the EE (EE102) building of the university that is restricted for use to only staff and students of the University of Newcastle. Passing an OH&S Quiz is required for admission to the space, due to safety rules that are in place by the university.

Resources[edit]

Our Makerspace is continually adding equipment and parts for the members to use, at the moment we have:

  • Two oscilloscopes
  • Soldering equipment
  • Several power supplies
  • PCB prototyping mill
  • Computers
  • Laser Printer
  • Fridge
  • Storage facilities and lockers.
  • Projector
  • Textbook library
  • Whiteboard

Several high-end computers with dual monitors, additional testing equipment (such as function generators etc), are proposed to further expand the tools available to our members.

We have a mailing list for anyone not with the university as a point of contact for a external space.


See also[edit]

There is also a proposal for a public makerspace in Newcastle that will be accessible to the general public.
