What is a makerspace?
A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library, or other facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses both digital fabrication equipment, basic tools and some creativity! Makerspaces are great for both kids and adults to help learn new skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Some of the skills that are learned in a makerspace pertain to electronics, design, 3d printing, 3D modeling, coding, robotics and even woodworking.
