Collaboration through making drives interest in STEM
A makerspace is a collaborative workspace inside a school, library, or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring, and sharing using high-tech or non-tech tools. These spaces are open to kids, adults, and entrepreneurs and have a variety of maker equipment including 3D printers, robotics, laser cutters, CNC machines, circuit boards, soldering irons and even sewing machines. A makerspace, however, doesn’t need to include all these machines or even any of them to be considered a makerspace. If you have cardboard and art supplies, you’re in business!
