Maker Spaces at LFPL
What is a Maker Space?
A maker space is a collaborative work space for making, learning, and exploring with high-tech and no-tech tools. These spaces are open to kids (must be accompanied by an adult), adults, and entrepreneurs. The maker space houses a variety of maker equipment including 3D printers, laser cutters, Cricut machines, sewing machines, art supplies, and more.
