High-tech innovation isn’t limited to Silicon Valley; it is also happening in urban and rural Nebraska. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s 4-H Extension is establishing creative and tech hubs, called Makerspaces, around the state.

A “Makerspace” is a community-oriented space that serves as a hub for innovators, artists, and entrepreneurs and has equipment like the laser cutters and 3D printers. Bradley S. Barker, PH.D., Professor and Technology Literacy Specialist and Outreach Coordinator for the Center for Science, Math, and Computer Education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln shares more about the Makerspace movement in Nebraska.
