  • Our local Middle School built a Makerspace that is for the kids during the day and for the community after school hours. Once the kids leave, community members can swipe their makerspace badges and access all the equipment for their projects. The cool thing is that the adult members pay a small monthly fee to be a member, which is used to purchase, update and maintain the equipment that everyone, including the kids in class, use. It has been a HUGE win/win for the community and the kids.
