STEAM Engine is our makerspace for secondary school students, teachers and community to undertake self-directed learning in line with their own technology interests.

During this designated weekly time slot, local people have access to the advanced manufacturing equipment and resources available at the Tech School. Following an induction, attendees will have access to the tools they require for their personal projects. The main objective of the sessions is for people to follow their own interests and as such, no specific program content is provided.

At no fee, these times are also available for small businesses to come in and use the Tech School facilities to test their new ideas, prototype their new products, or consult with Tech School staff about manufacturing processes.
