When you’re just getting started learning about the maker movement, local makerspaces are the perfect place to get started on your own projects!
Makerspaces can come in all shapes and sizes, and no two makerspaces are the same—some might feature more traditional supplies like crafting materials and LEGOs, while others might be fully-outfitted with 3D printers, laser cutters, and hand tools.
As long as they’re a place where people can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore, and discover using a variety of materials, they’re a “makerspace.”
We talked to Amber Straub, who’ll be hosting a soldering station with local makerspace Metrix Create:Space, about what she’s looking forward to this year:
We have had such an overwhelmingly amount of fantastic applications that we need more time to work out logistics, which is holding us up in sending out acceptance notifications. If you have applied to be a maker, we will be notifying you regarding participation no later than Friday of this week! We appreciate your patience…this event will be EPIC!!
