Robots and virtual reality in the Arctic: Tech-focused makerspace opens in Iqaluit
Publication/Creation DateSeptember 25 2018
DescriptionAs you enter the building that now houses Nunavut's first makerspace, visitors are immediately greeted by small, colourful robots zipping around by their feet.
Pinnguaq Makerspace is led by Nunavut-based technology non-profit Pinnguaq, which means "play" in Inuktitut. The facility is designed to be a community hub for people of all ages to explore science and technology.
"A makerspace is just a spot where, essentially, you can come and get access to technology and access to experiences that you just wouldn't have casually lying around at home," said Ryan Oliver, the executive director of Pinnguaq.
