This course is designed for the person who wants to explore their creativity in any medium with like-minded thinkers and tinkerers. If you want to find a place in your own community where you can enable your creative passions to come alive, then look no further. We will not only teach you about the Maker Space movement in the US; but, we will also teach you how to find a Maker Space in your own community--and, if one does not exist, then you will learn how you can start one in your own neighborhood. You will learn the ins and outs of Making with technology and other arts and crafts, for we are all Makers at heart!

Project Administrator--Dr. Nichols earned his PhD at the University of Washington where he specialized in teaching and learning. Through these videos his goals are to introduce a learning style and method that will allow from the youngest to the oldest to access the knowledge imparted in these Maker Space videos. Students should find the learning both challenging and easy to grasp.
