MAKERSPACES - Where the World's Next Great Innovations Begin

makerspaces from Treston

Makerspaces, sometimes called hackerspaces or fablabs, are a rising trend, particularly on college campuses. These spaces are community locations where students or groups can gather to create, build, and share ideas. Outside of a formal education, makerspaces provide an informal, beyond-the-classroom approach to sharing ideas and hands-on learning amongst peers. While makerspaces are usually structured for use in fields such as engineering and technology (STEM), they are also used for disciplines such as art and woodworking. With shared equipment and tools, students of all backgrounds and levels have access to the resources needed for their projects.

A makerspace is where society’s next great ideas begin and makerspace benches should be worthy of that greatness.

Treston workstation products have a proven history of providing innovative companies with solutions that shape society. From advancements in transportation and space exploration, to consumer electronics and medical advancements, Treston has developed quality products for companies with great ideas. Treston offers students that same level of quality workspace design for their makerspaces.
