What is the MakerSpace?
The Makerspace is the place where people can gather to learn, create and make 3D objects, craft projects, or anything that their creative mind desires. 
What is a 3D printer?
A 3D printer can print three dimensional objects from a digital file. A 3D printed object is created using additive processes, in which tiny layers of the object are built from the bottom up. 
You can download most 3D object models for free from thingiverse.com website, or you can download the free version of the graphic design software program called TinkerCad and create your own 3D objects.
What is a Virtual Reality?
Virtual reality is an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment.
The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality system that completely immerses users inside virtual worlds and allows them to experience anything, anywhere, through the power of virtual reality. On a computer, virtual reality is primarily experienced through two of the five senses: sight and sound. It is developed and manufactured by Oculus VR, a division of Facebook Inc., released on March 28, 2016.
What is the Cricut?
The Cricut is a name-brand ultimate smart cutting machine. With its expandable suite of tools and advanced Rotary and Knife blades, Cricut gives you the freedom to make virtually any DIY project. It cuts hundreds of materials, from the most delicate fabric and paper to matboard and leather.
