Mt. Elliott Makerspace

Witnessing the collaboration and hands-on learning that happens at makerspaces is nothing short of inspirational. Seeing a community come together to create such a positive space for all members is thrilling. Mt. Elliott Makerspace in Detroit has been featured before on the blog, but they recently created this video titled “What Is the Mt. Elliott Makerspace” that really captures the essence and magic of what makes makerspaces so awesome.

Check it out:

From their site:

The Mt Elliott Makerspace is a community workshop that serves as an environment for knowledge exchange and entrepreneurial experimentation through “making.” The intention of the Mt Elliott Makerspace is to pool the talents and tools of creative makers by serving as a gathering space for learning, sharing and doing. By concentrating this maker spirit, the Makerspace may begin to effectively address community challenges related to education, economic development, and well-being.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
