What is a Makerspace?

A makerspace is a community-operated workspace where people with common and diverse interests can meet, socialize, create, and collaborate.

Makerspaces function as centers for peer learning and knowledge sharing in the form of workshops, presentations, classes, and lectures. They serve as open community centers where anyone can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.

Makerspaces provide access to tools, equipment, techniques, and resources that may be otherwise out-of-reach. Think of them as a public library where you can build a table, print t-shirts, battle robots, and publish your own comic books all in one weekend.
