Transcript of MakeUS!: Makerspace philosophy, design and programming

What is a MakerSpace?
The view from Washington: Carol Brey-Casiano, Division Chief, IRO Field Support & Training - Office of American Spaces
Make sure to follow the standards
When you set your goal follow the pyramid

What is MakeUS!
Mission Russia
American maker/DIY
FabLab @ MISiS
FABLAB - a set of technological and intellectual resources to transform ideas into functional prototypes.

FABLAB - is the shortest way from sketch to finished product, this is the shortest path from dream to its realization.

FABLAB - the ability to make (almost) anything.

Why all this is so cool ?
Fab Lab
Fab Lab is the educational outreach component of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA), an extension of its research into digital fabrication and computation.
A Fab Lab is a technical prototyping platform for innovation and invention, providing stimulus for local entrepreneurship. A Fab Lab is also a platform for learning and innovation: a place to play, to create, to learn, to mentor, to invent.
To be a Fab Lab means connecting to a global community of learners, educators, technologists, researchers, makers and innovators- -a knowledge sharing network that spans 30 countries and 24 time zones.

• Improve American Spaces outreach through enhanced awareness of USG-funded and American library makerspace initiatives;
• Identify free and low-cost resources for implementing maker programs;
• Explore space design and mobile options for deploying maker initiatives in American Spaces; and
• Experiment directly with maker activities in order to be better equipped to lead them.
