Makerspaces Library Set Book Review
This Makerspaces book series from Rosen Publishing will let you know the ins and outs of makerspace equipment and projects that can be built in these new community spaces. This introductory library set walks the reader through everything from how to find, fund, and start your own makerspace to the many ways to use 3D printers and much more. Readers can learn about Arduino, RobotC, and Lego robots, makerspace competitions, Arduino projects such as electronic dice, strobe lights, talking clocks, and even unmanned aerial vehicles such as drones!!
Makerspaces are growing increasingly popular in libraries as we strive to become partners in production and provide valuable science and engineering skills to our patrons. This set of books is a great basic introduction for librarians who are looking for an overview of what these tools and technologies are and what can be done with them.
