Makerspaces have popped up all over the country in recent years, especially with increased access to 3D printers and the birth of the makers’ movement. These communal spaces, often housed at education institutions or libraries, offer a collaborative environment for individuals of all ages to express their creativity through DIY projects. Many makerspaces offer access to resources like 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies, and more to help users collaborate on or implement new ideas or projects. Many of the skills fostered in makerspaces translate to manufacturing careers, and allow students to experience what it’s like to craft and create something of their own. In Pennsylvania, we have makerspaces across the state for students and adults alike to learn, collaborate, and see what it’s like to become makers themselves!
