Children in the Mashpee Recreation Department afterschool program learn digital fabrication using “Fab@School Maker Studio” with Matthew and Brandy Jackson of Mobile MakerSpace of Cape Cod. Barret Jackson, 10, starts the “Silhouette Portrait” printer, which will make a paper cutout design he fabricated.
– “A makerspace is an area in a library where users can use tools and equipment to design, build, and create all sorts of different things. It may be a dedicated room or a multipurpose space in which a collection of raw materials and resources can be utilized as desired. Projects range from prototyping product designs with 3D printers, to programming robots, to creating art out of recycled items.”
