What is a Maker Space?

Makerspaces (also known as Hackerspaces, Creative Spaces, Fab Labs, Makelabs and in California - Makerhoods), according to Wikipedia,  are open community labs where members with common interests (e.g., engineering, computer programming, inventing, graphic design, etc.) gather to share resources, knowledge, career networking and build new devices.  Generally, makerspaces are designed to meet the following needs:

  • Provide access to a wide variety of tools and technology;
  • Facilitate group interaction, knowledge, and resource sharing;
  • Supply access to physical space for individual project development;
  • Provide an open environment for expression of creativity and innovation;
  • Access to equipment for prototyping project ideas for companies.

Simply, a makerspace is a place where creativity comes together, is fostered and encouraged.
