WeatherTech Innovation Lab

The WeatherTech Innovation Lab (WIL) is both a makerspace in the library and an emerging technologies lab

Lab Resources

The Innovation Lab wants to attract a broad selection of students, rather than students from just one specific discipline or class level. Students are made to feel welcome in the space: we have open windows to see into the lab and a mix of study & worktables. We offer opportunities for students to take real ownership of their vision and creations. We aim to equip students with life skills, and the space to be authentic to their needs and closely align with the core values and goals of our university and library.

Students are welcomed and encouraged to use the following resources:

  • White board | Dry erase board
  • Projector
  • 3D printing
  • Vinyl cutter
  • Sewing machine
  • Embroidery machine
  • VR headset
  • Adobe creative suite
  • House workshops for tech offered or lectures for classes
  • Collaborative spaces for student projects
  • Help with posters and other projects for creations
  • Crafting corner/Button maker
  • Zines
  • Laptops
  • Movie making kits
  • And so much more!
