There’s a growing interest in creating open-ended experiences through maker activities for all ages /demographics in museums. In some cases this is a formal dedicated space with structured programming, in others it might be a “pop-up” activity situation, either on or off site.
This panel will invite maker space directors from different types of museums in various stages of implementation to give short presentations on the goals of creating the space, the successes and failures along the way, and offer advice for anyone interested in bringing this type of program into their museum. It will then turn to a discussion of how maker/hacker spaces might function differently in science museums, vs. art or history museums. The discussion will feature how to start this kind of project, fund it, and some early evaluation and assessment.
