Makerspace at your school?

Did you know that 1,000 high schools across the country will open “Makerspaces” in the next four years? If you don’t know what that is, check out Lasers, 3-D Printers, And Robots: The New Shop Class.

The project, an offshoot of O’Reilly Media’s popular Maker Faires and co-sponsored by a grant from DARPA, is described as “sort of a mashup of a shop class, a computer lab, an art class, and maybe a bio lab.” The project’s goal is to get more kids more interested in STEM fields by giving them more opportunities to get their hands dirty.

Do you have a Makerspace in your school?
