WHAT IS A 1st MAKERSPACE?
A SCHOOL MAKERSPACE IS WHERE CREATIVE KIDS COME TO SHARE TOOLS, MATERIALS, SKILLS AND IDEAS TO MAKE THINGS.
A key consideration is the likelihood that your makerspace will change over time. 1st Maker Space specializes in customized, highly efficient plans that maximize utilization of every sized learning space. Upgrade costs are minimized and surprises are eliminated. Visual elements and signage that inspire creativity and create a productive atmosphere are included.
Makerspace construction requires extra time and special knowledge of maker tools and equipment, optimal storage of materials/supplies, and the best maker furniture to use to maximize use of space and minimize costs. Based on each vision and budget, 1st Maker Space can arrange for learning space upgrades (electrical, exhaust...etc.) and installation of furniture, fixtures and decorations.
Launching a makerspace is fun – but training, sustaining and resupplying one can take time. 1st Maker Space specializes in helping makerspaces run effectively by keeping the equipment in working order and restocking consumables. The 1st Maker Space maker educator network provides access to new projects, curriculum and best practices developed throughout the maker community.
