  • This article discusses the importance of makerspaces being an educational philosophy, not a fad and stresses that they are for open ended exploration for everyone.  To keep makerspaces relevant, they need to be sustainable and require reflection.  The differences between STEM labs and makerspaces are noted. The connection between makerspaces and literature is featured.

Laura Fleming does a great job explaining what makerspaces really can be and convincingly asserts that they are more than a passing trend.  She adequately explains how to keep makerspaces relevant by encouraging readers to constantly refine and grow their programming.  I agree with her assertion that a true makerspace is more than students making 30 of the same project, and that it is possible and even advantageous to bring literature into the makerspace.  Laura Fleming is a great advocate for the makerspace.
