Guests: Nathan Robison, Programming Librarian, Orem Public Library; Matt Kammerer, Media Associate, Orem Public Library In libraries and schools and warehouses around the country, spaces are popping up where people can come and use 3-D printers, high-end computer software and lots of gadgets to make stuff. Back when I was in high school, we had a sewing lab and a wood shop that attracted students with an itch to create. Today’s “makerspaces,” as they’re called, are similar, but usually more high-tech. A little later this hour, we’ll meet the man who coined the term “makerspace” and started Make Magazine more than a decade ago.
