Makerspaces don’t have to be dangerous. But, by their very nature, there are a lot of hazardous tools, sharp equipment, and potential trip hazards around the room. This is just as true in a community-hosted makerspace as in a STEM classroom. While you can’t remove every potential danger without completely emptying out the room, you can design the space to remove one of the most prevalent tripping hazards: power cords.
Here are three tools that can help your makerspace be as cord-free as possible:
They’re in every classroom: squirmy sitters, kids who find traditional, rigid chairs painful or constricting. The struggle to find a comfortable position can hinder their concentration and even distract others.

Flexible work spaces are here to stay. Therefore, multimedia desks are becoming more essential than ever in the workplace. Office design trends show that collaborative work spaces trump the individual desk in a wide variety of industries. When personal productivity does become necessary, it frequently still takes place in a group setting. Outfit your venue with office desks that accommodate this innovative workplace design.
