To give you a bit of background, a makerspace is actually a derivative of what we used to call the “hackerspace”, which was a bunch of people, and if you've seen the Facebook movie, they get into the basement, they drink beer, and they try to get into a government website. The one who wins gets a job.
It's this same idea of sharing knowledge and skills and accessing the means of production to develop something without necessarily owning the property of anything. I always think that if I were a philosopher, I would say that it's the discussion that Karl Marx and Adam Smith would have if they were to have a beer together at the Royal Oak. It's about developing a business without owning the means of production. It's completely changing the paradigm.
Going back to your question about entrepreneurship, what is interesting is that what we see a lot of these days is makerspaces in high schools. It's as simple as that. Give them the means. I've seen these kids at the University of Ottawa makerspace who were eight years old and doing the engineering summer camp. They were printing little Minecraft figurines with the printers. They were fascinated. Kids love to make things. We all do. When we were kids, we loved to build things. They just loved it. They learn to design, to scan, and to use their creativity.
It seems to me that it's the first step before I teach them about entrepreneurship. You don't really teach it. You give an ambition. You inspire someone.
