1k Makerspace for schools

1k (=1000 €) Makerspaces consist of 3D printers, 3D pens, vinylcutters and lasercutters. They are controlled by RasperryPi computers and can be used especially in the workshops of our schools without any additional conversion work.

The aims of this project are above all the promotion of pupils at disadvantaged hot spots as well as gender mainstreaming. The project focuses on the problem of interfaces in the transition from elementary school to secondary school as well as the preparation for professional life in industry 4.0.

The 1k Makerspace in the Future Learning Lab Vienna offers a great opportunity to learn by attending special workshops or simply by trying things out and working on own projects – always under the watchful eye of experts, who are on hand to explain the handling of the equipment within the process. Thus participants can learn/teach about current production and manufacturing technologies as well as the basic digital skills of new Industry 4.0 professions. Innovative technologies, an understanding of the digital world, and creative problem-solving skills are certainly all part of it.


The association Future Learning supports the work of the Future Learning Lab Vienna. The FLL Vienna is run in cooperation with the Centre for Learning Technology and Innovation at the University College of Teacher Education Vienna (PH Wien). In this function, the association applied for the implementation of a project of the Vienna Chamber of Labour, which is trying to equip all 50 schools in a district of Vienna called “Favoriten” with a so-called “1000€ Makerspace”.

The support by 3D pens and other digitally supported writing tools in the learning process of the elementary school has been researched and evaluated for two years in the project “Mint 3D Printing” at the PH Wien and the PH of Lower Austria. Conclusions and experiences from this work will be included into the “1k Makerspace” project.

As Future Classroom Ambassador for Austria Hermann Morgenbesser is in constant exchange with colleagues from all over Europe in order to pedagogically design the classroom of the future and meet the requirements of industry 4.0.
