The Spark Makerspace is a hands on learning lab for the UNT community with a mission to ignite the imagination, increase digital fluency, inspire explorative learning, support resume building, encourage personal growth & development of a maker mindset. The Spark makerspace is a service from the UNT Library and has two locations one in Willis Library room 135 and one at Discovery Park M130. As a unique combination of a hands-on learning lab and a library circulating collection, The Spark promotes the cooperative and creative use of technology to support the continual development of digital fluency for UNT students, faculty and staff. The makerspace provides the UNT community including faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students with access to equipment, software, and trainings. The Spark will host numerous workshops each long semester. Due to the current health concerns all workshops are currently being offered online.
The Spark offers assistance with learning how to use resources but we are not authorized to develop code or projects for individuals. We are here to help you and offer the following types of support.
Our maker-techs come from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise. You can easily identify them from their grey vests, and they will always be happy to help you.
