Starting this group to try and gauge interest in starting a local makerspace. There are many definitions of a Makerspace, but I like this one:
A space with materials for everyone to let their curiosity and imagination come to life. An informal, playful, atmosphere for learning to unfold. A space where making, rather than consuming is the focus. A space where trans-disciplinary learning, inquiry, risk-taking, thinking, crafting, tinkering, and wondering can blossom.
