Makers Making Change hosts workshops in the Maker Studio
Makers Making Change is an innovative community based initiative that connects makers to people with disabilities to create affordable open source assistive technologies. The organization collaborated with Maker Studio specialists to host a hackathon and buildathon that invited members of the public to create 3D printable accessible light switches and hack toys to make them more accessible to children with disabilities.
This partnership was one of many that encouraged members of the Calgary community to come and visit the Maker Studio and learn about resources that are open to the public. It also allowed the MRU makerspace to contribute to the important work of using the ever expanding world of tech to advocate and be inclusive.
