Te Rua Makerspace
Te Rua volunteers will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of skill-building activities in the UC library makerspace, including:
1. Assisting Te Rua staff in the operational set-up of events.
2. Running workshops in an area of proficiency/personal interest.
3. Creating resources for Te Rua events/outreach.
4. Facilitating social crafting events.
Through these activities, students will develop practical skills in facilitating creativity while increasing personal knowledge of Makerspace-specific technologies.
Eligibility/Selection Criteria & Process
Volunteers will ideally already have experience in Te Rua as a Maker, however any student with an interest in our activities, regardless of prior experience, can apply.
