QHSmakerspace posterFrom next Monday 9th May, our brand new Makerspace will be running in the Information Centre.  This will provide the opportunity for all students to create and make things, or just have a bit of a go with jigsaws, brainbox sets, found poetry, robotics or some craft projects.  The first session will cover what a Makerspace is, introduce everyone to how our Makerspace will work, and provide some inspiration to start making and creating.  From time to time we will bring in experts to guide us through specific projects or teach us new skills, and of course any students who already have a bit of expertise in various things will be encouraged to share.

For more information visit our Makerspace website
