A new accent wall and branded whiteboards now showcase Pierre Berton Resource Library’s MAKE IT! space.

The back wall of MAKE IT! has been painted a navy blue. Vinyl words such as Die Cutter, Robotics and Coding are scattered throughout with #BeAmaker, lettering 4 ft. wide by 1.5 ft. tall, highlighted on the central part of the wall.

Five mobile whiteboards have also been covered with high gloss vinyl on one side to define the area where makers of all levels go to create. Each brilliantly-coloured, 6 ft. wide by 3.5 ft. height board shows various activities happening in the space: green screen, electronics, virtual reality and 3D printing. You must check it out!
