Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Makerspace?
A Makerspace is a space that contains tools and components, allowing people to enter with an idea and leave with a completed project. It can even be a space for entrepreneurs to use as a stepping stone to their own business. The best part is that makerspaces are communal. We strive for a friendly and “There are no bad questions” type of atmosphere. The mission is to work together to learn, collaborate, and share.
