Makerspace Playbook - School Edition

A subgenus of maker pro we come across frequently at the Maker Pro Newsletter are the educators, hackers, and citizens who see a need in their local community and opt to open their own makerspace. What they soon discover is that running a makerspace is hard, and requires organizational or business acumen — just look at the fate of TechShop (@techshop), which filed for bankruptcy last year.

If you’re interested in starting a makerspace in your own community, there’s no better guide than the Makerspace Playbook, a timeless Maker Media (@Make) guide to starting a makerspace in your school, neighborhood or community. It includes resources on everything from safety and design to inventory, budgets and documentation — an invaluable magnum opus on the business of makerspaces.”
