A group of students learning to use a 3D printer.

Former students learned how to use 3D printers to make assistive hands for amputees abroad and then shared their skills with disadvantaged youth. We’re opening our doors to show you facilities like the Richard L’Abbé Makerspace and the uOttawa Entrepreneurship Hub, which made this possible.
