Many of today's makerspaces see themselves as places for individuals to build anything they can imagine. Whether it's a child who wants to design her own fidget spinner or a college student who needs to prototype a class project, makerspaces allow the mind’s creativity to become reality.  This panel will unpack the inclusive goals of makerspaces and ask the question: Who's not here and why? Exploring issues of equity and access, the panelists will share their experiences of creating more inclusive spaces that address the important social issues of our time.
