Is Inworks a makerspace?
When people walk into Inworks, they often think, “Wow, what a cool makerspace,” but we like call our workspaces “prototyping labs.” While we have all of the equipment you might find in a makerspace, Inworks is much more. Here, students and community members learn human-centered design and work collaboratively to solve challenging problems, contribute to humanity, and maybe even change the world.
