Coders, Innovators, Makers: Creating a Library Makerspace

Andy Plemmons (@plemmonsa) is raising money for a library Makerspace. He's using DonorsChoose (@DonorsChoose) to make it happen.

Our library embraces a makerspace culture where every student has an opportunity to dream, innovate, create, and share those creations with a global audience. Last year, we began building our makerspace and makerspace culture by participating in hour of code and receiving a 3D printer from Donors Choose. This year, we have big plans for expanding our makerspace to include littleBits, Hummingbird robotics, Sphero, and MaKey MaKey kits. Our local budget can only support a portion of what we hope to do.

Libraries were such a big part of our lives as kids (and now for our kids) so we're really happy to support the project.
