WHAT IS A MAKERSPACE?

A makerspace is a room that contains tools and components, allowing people to enter with an idea and leave with a complete project. It is a communal area that helps people learn, collaborate, and share ideas. Makerspaces help people to explore, create new things, or improve things that already exist.
