The Shack Virtual Tour

The Shack is a science hardware makerspace at the University of Alberta where students, staff, and faculty can bring their ideas to life. Equipment including 3D printers, a laser cutter, electronics, and more are available for use by the students, staff, and faculty. We also offer advice on everything "maker".

The Shack brings interdisciplinary undergraduate students into our open-access facility to pursue projects that would not be possible elsewhere. Access to cutting-edge design and manufacturing technologies means that students can leverage their university education and their creative skills to bring their ideas to life.

Many of our existing projects span many scientific fields, creating countless opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. The Shack is also working to provide opportunities to involve the greater University of Alberta community, as well as public outreach initiatives.

The Shack is located on the bottom floor of the Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science (CCIS) Building on the University of Alberta North Campus, room L2-136. It is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
