Promoting creativity and advancing the spirit of innovation and enterprise through technology
Enabling people of all ages to create, make, collaborate and learn with others in a technical environment.
An open space area where members can explore, design and develop prototypes and make products with computers and other technologies. Supported by on site wood, metal and electronic workshops.
Makerspace is a fun environment and gives people of all ages opportunities to explore and test ideas through hands-on personalised experience, apply theory to real world situations and learn how to learn from failure. It helps to develop problem solving skills.
The UK Gov is keen to support these spaces to enable people to improve skills and enrich job opportunities:
A makerspace is a physical location where people gather to co-create, share resources and knowledge, work on projects, network, and build. They help intermediate and advanced users develop their skills and creativity, particularly inspiring younger generations to engage with the STEM agenda – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (or STEAM as it is now sometimes becoming referred to, by also including the Arts). Their activity promotes development of high-end technology skills needed for prosperity and social mobility. (UK Gov Description)
