As a Maker who has built a lot of incredible things here and as an intern who has worked in setting this lab up, there’s just so much more to MakersBox than just creating new things. This is the place where you’ll learn, play, break and build, where you’ll inspire, innovate and invent, and eventually make your next big thing. MakersBox to me is a theatre of dreams, and a workshop where you make them come true.

I never thought, Maths and Science could be so much fun. As a Student Ambassador at MakersBox, I got a Chance to work with technology up close, and use it in my day to day learning. Schools should teach fundamentals of Science and Maths using the Methodology MakersBox has.
