It may have started off as a master’s thesis project, but the Parachute Factory makerspace that Las Vegas native Mariano Ulibarri launched in February is still going strong. And we, as a community, are better off because of it.
A makerspace is a do-it-yourself environment that brings people together to create, tinker and repair items. The makerspace movement has its foundation in Hacker Scouts, a national nonprofit that formed in Oakland, Calif., in 2012, to help kids build skills and creativity in science, technology, engineering, art and math.
