Have a creative idea you’re dreaming of bringing to life? MakerSpaceNYP can make it happen for you. Launched in July 2016, MakerSpaceNYP was created for students and staff to help turn their bright ideas into reality.
Creative tinkerers can find everything they need here – workstations, 3D and t-shirt printing stations; areas to sew, make jewellery and for paper crafting and letter pressing. There are also photography, videography and audio recording studios.
With such a wide range of tools, materials and facilities at your disposal, you’re only limited by your imagination!
If you’re interested in user experience, interaction design or media design, then head over to our brand new MakersNode in Block N Level 3.
Here you’ll find brain storming areas for a whole range of digital technologies, with rapid mock-up capability, eye-tracking (beginning of 2019), virtual reality (VR), vlogging, stop-motion and green screen videography, as well as media editing facilities using the complete Adobe CC suite of software.
Are you an NYP alumni?
