WHAT IS A MAKER/INNOVATION SPACE?
Under any of its various names (Makerspace, Innovation lab, Hackerspace, Hacklab), a maker space is generally a community-oriented workspace designed to encourage exploration, experimentation and collaboration among people with common interests, usually technologically-oriented. More succinctly, it's a place designed to help people think in new ways, and to give them tools to realize their ideas in creative and inventive ways.
HOW WILL THE SPACE OPERATE?
In broad terms, Davidson's new Maker Space will run like a startup, open to new ideas as well as emerging technologies. The space will be geared toward experimentation, open not only to technologies with direct and predictable applications to curricula but also to experimental ideas and unproven technologies. Three basic terms will define its operation: open, engaged and experimental.
User output from the space will be publicly documented and the Maker Space staff will maintain an active online dialogue to engage the campus at every opportunity.
WHO WILL OPERATE THE SPACE?
Brian Little, ITS Computing Support Analyst, will manage the space, serving as the primary point of contact and coordinating the space's development. Over time, we will work to add students who can help run the space as well.
