Makerspace

Entrance

The SPH Makerspace is run by our Makerspace team, who are also the lab managers. We are a group of students that are passionate about making and convinced that ETH students need easier access to infrastructure and tools to prototype their ideas. You are eager to use the space and have questions to the makerspace team? Go ahead and contact us on !
