What is a Makerspace, anyway?

Generally, a makerspace is a room or area dedicated to hands-on discovery. This space is stocked with the tools, supplies, and other resources needed to facilitate your creative projects. You may arrive with an idea (or even a half-baked idea!) and leave with a finished product. The goal of the makerspace is to further your experiential or kinesthetic learning skills and encourage your appetite for innovation, collaboration, and creativity!
