What is a Makerspace

Makerspaces are community driven spaces that let you make, learn and share. They promote innovation and discovery by combining traditional science, engineering and maths fields, with art and creativity.

Makerspaces are ideal places to meet people with similar interests, exchange knowledge and experience, collaborate and access emerging technologies. They expand on the idea of libraries as places of knowledge collection and access, to also be places of knowledge creation.
