Where We Are: Tk’emlúps
Makerspace is located on the traditional lands of the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc and is part of Thompson Rivers University, which extends to the lands of the T’exelc (Williams Lake campus) within Secwepemcúl’ecw, the traditional and unceded territory of the Secwépemc.
We respectfully acknowledge that these lands have always been a place of teaching, learning, and making. Through our actions within Makerspace we strive to honour the gift of being here and work towards reconciliation.
What is Makerspace?
Makerspace is where TRU students, staff, and faculty can learn about technology through hands-on learning, experimentation, and play. There are no costs to using Makerspace and we provide all materials for learning and creating small projects. Projects don’t need to be connected with coursework as long as you’re following our guidelines and learning. Learn more about us on our About Makerspace page.
