IMLS and Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh to Partner on Makerspaces Project

“At a meeting of the National Museum and Library Services Board IMLS announced an initiative with the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh (CMP) to build the capacity of libraries and museums to develop effective makerspaces and programs.  In recent years there has been an explosion of interest among museums and libraries in the hands-on, mentor-led learning environments known as makerspaces.  The maker movement has spread with hundreds of thousands of people participating in Maker Faires across the country and across the globe. The White House recently announced plans for a 2014 White House Maker Faire.” (via IMLS)
