    Welcome to Forest Glen's MakerSpace!
    Makerspaces, sometimes also referred to as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, computer programs, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, and more.  Forest Glen is proud to offer students the opportunity to visit our Makerspace!  Students are welcome to explore, build, tinker, and create.
