- What is a Makerspace?
A makerspace, also known as Hackerspace, TechShop and FabLab, is a
"community center" that provides space, tools, technology,
manufacturing equipment and educational opportunities to the public.
It's a workplace where people gather to share ideas, resources
and knowledge, work on projects, network, collaborate, build and show off.
A Makerspace is the perfect resource for tinkerers, creative artists,
roboticists, 3D designers, wood workers, startups, product development,
DIY projects, mad scientists, evil geniuses and all who aspire to learn more.

Some examples of other Makerspaces are:
- Why build one?
IT IS PRICELESS ...
- to steer a young person away from the street and drugs
- to give them a place to go where they have no choice but to learn and have fun
- to guide teens toward thoughts of art, science, engineering and technology
- To empower anyone with the facilities to imagine, invent and create
- To provide a place for project and prototype collaboration for startups
