The principal brother pinto says The makerspace in Sem has been setup in an old tunnel,that used to run beneath the schools main field and was for a time used as coal storeage. The furniture in the space has been made using upcycled materials such as old floor boards from the school bio lab. This way the school helps in reducing its carbon footprint.
The makerspace in Sem has been setup with the help of Abhimanyu Kumar, from Mistri Labs, who also runs a makerspace here in Nainital and when the school opens after the covid lockdown, he will take classes on woodworking and robotics in this space.
The space will at a time be able to host 24 students, who will build projects with various materials using the skills taught to them thus giving them knowledge in practical problem solving. The makerspace will be home to the latest tools and equipment such as 3D printers and laser cutters as well as old traditional tools that the students can utilize to build their projects.
The space was designed keeping in mind the architectural and historical importance of the tunnel and as such the build team at Mistri Labs tried to preserve as much of the old structure as possible and with the fancy mood lighting it kind of resembles some rooms from the Harry Potter films which is a happy coincidence.
