What is the Makerspace?
- Makerspace is a catch all term to refer to a service that offers equipment that enables the creation or fabrication of prototypes of designs or customized “parts”.
- The vision for the Walker Library makerspace service is to provide an active-learning experience for students to use technology as a tool and to make it accessible to students of every level of technical expertise.
- Research libraries with a makerspace learning area have found them to be instrumental in support of the STEAM (science, technology, engineering Arts and Math) initiatives.
