While in Atlanta a few weeks ago for the third annual Atlanta Mini Maker Faire, I had the opportunity to return to the Invention Studio, a student-run makerspace where I spent a few years honing my skills and meeting other makers. The Studio is a five-room space full of tools, parts, and students working on academic or personal projects. The space and the 60+ students who run it are providing a service to the school that’s invaluable – the ability to create and learn how to work with your hands.
