CENTRAL POINT, Ore.,-After four long years of work and planning, CraterWorks MakerSpace officially opened their doors in Central Point. The public was invited to come out today and get a grand tour of the building and all it has to offer.

Teachers, students, and community members students stopped by to check out facility complete with supplies, tools, equipment and technology to manufacture virtually anything. The equipment and space gives an authentic learning experience to students that could pave the way for a career path.

"A lot of times people think that students either take woodshop in high school and go on to a trade or they take AP calculus and go onto university. Our vision is is that every student will have those authentic learning experiences here," says the Central Point School District Superintendent, Samantha Steele.

The makerspace is not just for middle and high school students, but an entire community. Any one can get a membership to work in the space during business hours. Industries can host workshops in the community to teach valuable schools to future employees.
