CCC Maker was recently included in an article published by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) on September 6, 2018 called The rise of the makerspace.
The article begins: “Community colleges are investing in makerspaces to grow innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration.
Innovation and creativity need spaces in which to grow and be nurtured. Safe spaces. That’s why so many community colleges are designing makerspaces. They aren’t new, but they are on the rise.
In California, building makerspaces on campuses is a statewide effort. The CCC Maker initiative, funded by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, Workforce and Economic Division, is aimed at fostering a maker culture and entrepreneurship while fueling job creation and strengthening regional economies. Community collaboration and industry partnerships are a big part of the makerspace model, and students will have opportunities for internships.”
