Mobile MakerSpaces

Library Creating Mobile ‘MakerSpaces’

Altus Times | August 28, 2015

The Southern Prairie Library System has received a grant to provide science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) materials and activities for children and adults in Jackson and Harmon counties. Financial assistance for this special project is made possible with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries.
The funds will enable the public libraries in Altus and Hollis to create mobile “MakerSpaces” that will offer materials and projects for arts and crafts design, simple coding and electronics, basic robotics, 3D printing and LEGO creative building projects.

The equipment is sent to the various libraries through our system delivery bins. Instructions are taped to each makerspace bin so the receiving library knows where to send the equipment next and by what day it must be sent."]) and (Create your own mobile makerspace.
