Making implies creating stuff, structures and systems at any scale. In maker spaces people share space, tools, machines and knowledge to realize their projects. Learning by doing, especially in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.), has been re-invented. Grass-root innovation and community projects flourish. The fab lab worldwide community, a concept developed by Neil Gershenfeld at MIT, offers an innovation network with more than 1000 physical hubs and presence in almost every country of the world.
