What is the Makerspace? 

The makerspace is a facility at the Valletta Design Cluster that contains the tools and space needed to allow creative people to enter with an idea and leave with a complete project. Makerspaces allow us to explore, create new things, or improve things that already exist.  The best part is that the makerspace is communal. The goal is to work together to learn, collaborate, and share. The space is about building a community, promoting the maker mind set and exploring your own interests while encouraging entrepreneurship.
