Makerspace9220 started with a need. Jacob, teacher in a public school and founder of the space, needed to find a way to print 3D objects for a course. After looking around, the idea of building a makerspace grew up inside his head. A few months after, he started to build the project. He first contacted the municipality and became the project leader for this coming makerspace inside Trekanten Culture House in Aalborg.
The makerspace provides technology to everyone. It has been greatly inspired by HAL9K makerspace, where the community already has the technical knowledge to use the equipments by themselves. But there, the local users don’t know how the machines are working. One of their goals is to train people to be autonomous with the machinery and give them a new view on current technologies. This is a strong value for the workshop’s team. As it is a part of the municipality, the team want/need to share the knowledge with all the community members.
