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

Makerspace is a space where people have the freedom and facilities to make things. They serve as a gathering point for tools, projects, mentors and expertise. It allows communities of new and experienced makers to connect to work on real and personally meaningful projects, informed by mentors and expertise, using new technologies and traditional tools.

I have experienced the Makerspace strategy through my schooling experience. One of them included an area in the back of the classroom where fellow peers and I were able to paint our weather posters.
