What Is a Makerspace?
Makerspace is a place where people collaborate to share tools, materials and expertise on all sorts of creative and technical endeavors. A makerspace can be classrooms, mobile units, after-school workshops, and more. It's the activities and learning process inside the space that makes it truly impactful for students.
