MakerSpace


MakerSpaces are vital tools to education in the 21st Century and represent the democratization of design, engineering, fabrication and education.
 
A fairly new phenomenon, MakerSpaces combine manufacturing equipment, community, and education for the purposes of enabling community members to design, prototype and create manufactured works that wouldn’t be possible to create with the resources available to individuals working alone. These spaces can take the form of loosely-organized individuals sharing space and tools, for-profit companies, non-profit corporations, organizations affiliated with or hosted within schools like Deer Lakes.
 
All are united in the purpose of providing access to equipment, community, and education, and all are unique in exactly how they are arranged to fit the purposes of the community they serve.
