What is a Makerspace?

There are many interpretations of what constitutes a makerspace. A general definition is that a makerspace, sometimes referred to as a hackerspace or fablab, is a creative, DIY space where people can gather to create, invent and learn. Makerspaces can exist in many forms and be equipped with a variety of tools and equipment, but the general intent is to be a space that encourages making, collaborating and sharing knowledge.
