However, while studying in Delft, some students noticed that it took too much work to get innovative projects off the ground. It was hard to always assemble tools, find a workplace, safely and on a student budget! As a result, projects with a lot of potential got shelved.
In the fall of 2020, these students decided to create a shared co-working space for students embarking on small or individual engineering projects. This space is now known as Makerspace Delft.
Makerspace Delft is a non-profit run by a team of volunteers from the Delft area. These volunteers bring experience from Forze, Silverwing, Delft Hyperloop, and various other technical projects along with an ambitious and innovative spirit.
We envision a community where any person can create unique and extraordinary prototypes. We exist to bridge the gap between having an idea and creating a prototype, therefore unleashing the true technical potential of people in Delft.
Our mission is to make prototyping tools, machinery and mentorship affordable for everyone.
We have mentors young and old with experience in engineering, prototyping and entrepreneurship to help makers their journey.
We provide training to ensure that makers have the ability to use all tools and machinery without putting themselves at risk.
