The ANU donor community was invited on an exclusive tour of ANU MakerSpace, giving guests a unique look at one of the most innovative spaces on campus.
MakerSpace is a place where ANU staff and students can learn how to build and make anything to support their education, research and even personal hobbies.
In the spirit of MakerSpace, which encourages participants to rekindle their child-like inquisitiveness, guests enjoyed a hands-on tour.
Physics Lecturer Dr John Debs challenged everyone to experience a first year physics lecture by making a motor from a battery, a screw, some wire and a magnet.
And when art student Saskia Morris demonstrated the etching and laser printing machine by cutting keyrings she had designed, guests were delighted to receive their own copies straight off the machine.
The tour provided even more surprises when some guests got to whiz around the laboratory on a hovercraft made from a leaf blower!
We always look forward to welcoming donors to campus for behind-the-scenes tours. To learn more about supporting ANU and the impact you can have, visit ANU Giving.
