   What is a MakerSpace?

MakerSpaces refer to communities of people who come together to share resources and knowledge and to create things. Members can tinker, hack, and remake “stuff.” The spaces foster play, facilitate informal learning, nurture peer-to-peer training and ultimately cultivate an interest in science, technology and design.



HackLab.TO in Kensington Market is one such space: “ HackLab.TO is a community space with a diverse membership, including artists, computer programmers, web designers, and hardware hackers. It is inspired by the philosophies of the global hackerspaces movement which encourages people to socialize, share knowledge, and work together on their projects. "

Come and join Eric and Rob, members of HackLab.TO, and see their 3-D printer in action! They will be demonstrating and discussing some really cool projects such as robots and wearable electronics. They will also discuss the upcoming Toronto Mini Maker Faire.
