A makerspace (also called a maker space, hackerspace or fab lab) is where students can create, think, problem-solve and have fun. To get an idea of what that can look like in a library or school, watch this video
or look up Maker Faire on YouTube. After watching a few of the videos, you’ll get an idea of what the maker movement is about.
