Throughout the year, our team works with school groups and community organisations as well as government to promote the use of advanced IT infrastructure. We're always up for a challenge and excel at introducing new ways to tackle problems.
The MIXHAUS offers workshops in electronics, computers, 3D printers, millers and a range of other tools to make and design your own creations. Maker/hacker spaces are community-operated workspaces where people with common and different interests (such as computers, machining, technology, science, digital art and electronic art) can meet, create, socialise and collaborate. There are many of these spaces popping up around the country and the world, but this is the first for Townsville! Housed in a shipping container, you can find the MIXHAUS at various events and locations around Townsville city.
The project is in partnership with James Cook University, the City Libraries Townsville, and La Luna Youth Arts, with the eResearch Centre acting as the host for the design, construction and initial fit-out.
