It’s summertime! Time for kids to swim, sleep until noon, and forget everything they learned from the school year, right? Not so says the creators of the makerspace initiative in Fort Worth’s newest luxury home development of Walsh.
What’s a Makerspace?
According to our friends at makerspace.com, “a makerspace is a collaborative workspace inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.”
Okay, but what does that mean and what does that have to do with real estate?
The makerspace in Walsh, just 13 minutes west of downtown Fort Worth, is run by Scott Sumner. His job is to showcase all the amazing ways kids of any age can learn how to design, create and produce just about anything.
“If they come with an idea, we can pretty much make it happen,” claims Sumner. “We have machines for laser cutting, screen printing, woodworking, sewing, 3D printers and so much more. My job is to teach everyone what’s available and to explore the possibilities.”
