The MAKESHOP learning space

There was a great interview posted earlier today on the MAKE blog with Lisa Brahms and Adam Nye from the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh discussing the MAKESHOP learning space at CMP where kids and adults can experiment with various DIY skills like electronics, sewing, and woodworking.

Libraries get a passing mention as centers for informal learning, and there’s a lot public libraries could learn from CMP’s program. The MAKESHOP Show website, also mentioned in the interview, has several DIY craft ideas that could make for some awesome library programming.
