Makerspace

The RDC Makerspace is a place to learn through exploration, innovation, and creation.

Referrals

The RDC Makerspace provides the necessary tools, encouragement, expertise, and training to empower RDC students and other makers to act on their own innovative ideas. There may be times when the RDC Makerspace is unable to assist you with your design creation or production.  A key characteristic of maker culture is networking and supporting other makers. When we are unable to accommodate your making needs we will refer you to other resources in the community. 

If you have recommendations for additions or corrections to this list please email makerspace@rdc.ab.ca.
