MakerSpace Values

  • Everyone is a maker, and our world is what we make it. If you can imagine it, you can make it.   
  • Makers seek out opportunities to learn to do new things.   

  • Makers are creative and technical people who help one another do better. They are open, encouraging, and generous in spirit.   

  • Makers celebrate other makers – what they make, how they make it, and the enthusiasm and passion that drives them.   

  • Makers respect their own work, the work of others, and the tools they use.
