Makerspace for Education – Tamale, Ghana

TECHAiDE’s Makerspaces are created to provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage school children (Basic and Secondary Schools) to design, experiment, build and invent as they deeply engage in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology.

A typical TECHAiDE Makerspace includes augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing and robotics. It is not solely a science lab, computer lab, library or art room, but it contains elements found in all of these familiar spaces. Therefore, it is designed to accommodate a wide range of activities, tools and materials. Diversity and cross-pollination of activities are critical to the design, making and exploration process, and they are what sets TECHAiDE Makerspaces apart from other project-based learning.

A recently completed project is the Tamale Makerspace situated in the Northern Region of Ghana, West Africa. The Makerspace is installed to support child-centred education in the capital city of Tamale. Facilitators can educate up to forty (40) students at once with one (1) 3D printer, one (1) virtual reality system, six (6) robotic packages, one (1) projector and screen.

It is our hope that the new Tamale Makerspace will be the ideal place where young people have the opportunity to explore their own interests; learn to use tools and materials, both physical and virtual; and develop creative projects.
