Who is a Maker? And What is a MakerSpace?

Makerspaces, sometimes referred to as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, and more.

We Are Makers tells the story of the Maker Movement. It’s the story not of tools but of people. A publisher. An entrepreneur. A design professor. A middle school teacher. Two museum educators. And a creative director. Each provides an important viewpoint on why new technologies and communities of making are bringing us back to something deeply human.
