What is a MakerSpace? Have you seen/experienced one?
- MakerSpace comes in all shapes and sizes, but they all serve as a gathering point for tools, projects, mentors and expertise. We define MakerSpace by what it enables: the actual making. It serves as gathering points where communities of new and experiences makers connect to work on real and personally meaningful projects, informed by helpful mentors and expertise, using new technologies and traditional tools.
- Yes, I have experienced MakerSpace at home. When I was younger, my mother always gave me and my brother the opportunities to design ‘things’ from the resources and recycled materials. We always used my dads tools in the shed and asked mum for assistance when needed.
