Makerspaces are becoming a fixture on college campuses. In this episode, the first of a series of conversations with the people who manage makerspaces at the Best Maker Schools in higher ed, we talk with two people involved in makerspaces at the University of Maryland, College Park. Rick Blanton manages Terrapin Works at the Clark School of Engineering. Dr. Bill Pugh is a retired professor of computer science who established the Singh Family Sandbox makerspace in a new computer science building, built with a donation from the founders of Oculus. Last year, a group of makerspace leaders on campus formed the Makerspace Initiative and began sharing knowledge and safety training protocols. They produced the 2021 Makerspace Impact report, which can be found at:
