Connect! Discover! Achieve!!

What is a makerspace?

Why a makerspace?

Makerspaces provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent. Industry leaders and higher education centers are among some of the groups supporting K-12 education and community groups with the resources and technology to create makerspaces, which help young people develop confidence, creativity, and spark an interest in science, technology, engineering, math, the arts, and learning.
