How do you create a makerspace when you do not have a dedicated space, equipment or a large budget? We will discuss a variety of maker programs that can be delivered to an audience with a wide range of ages and abilities. We will also discuss ways to collaborate with the maker community to create dynamic programming. Participants will walk away with a greater understanding of how to create a makerspace within their existing space as well as knowledge about programming.
