Makerspaces are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn while incorporating critical thinking skills through trial and error. In libraries, makerspaces can have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft, hardware supplies and other tools to create projects.
The video below, We Are Makers, tells the story of the Makerspace movement.
The WLAC Library Makerspace projects have used various paper crafting skills to represent well-known themes and holidays. Paper Circuits use an LED bulb and coin battery to light up paper designs.
Origami is a paper folding technique used to create everyday objects, plants and animals.
