The MakerSpace gets a nod from the Rochester Business Journal

The RBJ (Rochester Business Journal) recently published an article about maker spaces and how vital they are to the advancement of productive communities in today’s economy. The article explained how the Makerspace fosters the spirit of community and collaboration while providing a space and equipment for the development of a variety of projects.

The article pointed out that a mich higher quality of products results when a diverse group of people with diverse skill sets collaborate on a project than when one individual is expected to provided all the ingenuity and creativity independently!
