The Spark Makerspace

Igniting the imagination through cooperative learning

 

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.

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 is partnering in UNT Career Connect to offer Micro Credentials for skills you attain through attending and completing the project/work within our workshops. You can then add the digital badge to your eportfolio to build your personal brand as you market yourself throughout your career.

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.  The Spark will host numerous workshops each long semester. Due to the current health concerns, all workshops are currently being offered online.
