It's in the Maker Space Stats!

Posted on April 7, 2015 at 5:30 AM

Found this today and feel as though that this could really direct me in my set up of a Maker Space;


A survey in 2013, Makerspaces in libraries, indicated 36% of the respondents were planning on providing a makerspace in their library.


Makerspaces appear in most types of libraries – 9% are in school libraries.


The top 15 technologies or forms of making, that were included in their makerspace were:

 

  • Computer workstations 67%
  • 3D printing 46%
  • Photo editing 45%
  • Video editing 43%
  • Computer programming/software 39%
  • Art and crafts 37%
  • Scanning photos to digital 36%
  • Creating a website or online portfolio 34%
  • Digital music recording 33%
  • 3D modeling 31%
  • Arduino/Raspberry Pi 30%
  • Other 30% (included knitting, Lego, etc.)
  • Animation 28%
  • High quality scanner 28%
  • Tinkering 26%
