What is a MakerSpace? Have you seen/experienced one? Share your experience here.

MakerSpace is known as a gathering point for tools, mentors and expertise. MakerSpace promotes learning through creativity as well as being a perfect place for students to explore the multifaceted world of new technologies they live in. I have experienced MakerSpace on my prac as the students had many activities they had to complete by the end of the day. I watched them use their knowledge, skills and group cooperation to work through the activities.
