Thanks Ram Chandra Thapa . We hope we can get as many youth involved as possible, though without compromising the quality of the engagement. Have you any thoughts on possibilities for livelihood creation?

Georg Hoehne Thanks Georg - We think children have the time and open-mindedness which their parents may not, and also are very good at sharing information and enthusiasm with their parents and others! I wonder if you have any experience/thoughts on the risk that, however, it does mean that a makerspace is seen as a kids thing, which could undermine similar spaces ability to be used by adults, for employment skills or supporting small businesses etc. at a later date?
