Meet the Makers: MakerPlaces in Libraries, Schools and Beyond

Harness the creative energy of a new generation of desigers
Watch this "live stream" panel discussion about Makerspaces:
"The Maker Movement is revolutionizing how we think about innovation – in Makerspaces around the country, people are using advanced tools and technology to harness their creative energy and design the next great invention. And libraries are playing a vital role; many libraries have developed their own Makerspaces, providing tools and technology services including: 3D printers, 3D scanners, laser cutters, and digital advancement classes at little or no cost to their patrons."
