Applied Research Club

"buildathon" events in Langara's Makerspace

Initiated and funded by Neil Squire Society, The Applied Research Club and Langara’s Makerspace are holding 2 public events this month to empower you to digitally produce assistive technologies for the Neil Squire community. No skill or experience is required. With support from Langara College, you can explore the possibilities of 3D printers, laser cutters and other tools at our Makerspace and build your very first assistive device for Canadians with physical disabilities 

 At these events, you will uncover the myths about 3D printing, explore the hands-on production processes involved, and enjoy some amazing food and drinks. 

 Join us on March 10th (Friday) and March 20th (Monday) . Get inspired, get empowered and get involved! 

 Time: 4 – 7pm 

Venue: Makerspace (A268) 

 Neil Squire Society is the only not-for-profit organization in Canada that for over 35 years has used technology, knowledge and passion to empower Canadians with physical disabilities. Their work helps clients remove obstacles and barriers so that they can live independent lives and become active members of our society.
