Some good thoughts with respect to maker spaces (quoted):
- Makerspaces should never be owned by single departments or disciplines;
- Whenever possible there should be a real-world purpose to the making
- The flow from construction from studio to fabrication lab is critical.
- Eliminate barriers to creation by avoiding as many prerequisites as possible.
Accdording to Swearer, "The collaborative environment makerspaces create helps students develop a sense of empowerment and resourcefulness. Thus, they acquire the desire and ability to create change through making."
