Makerspaces have been well received and used in communities, libraries, and universities, and those in Cincinnati, Ohio are no exception. However, there is limited outreach to and access by schools and adult learning programs. The Greater Cincinnati Regional Smart Campuses project broadens the scope to create a regional network of smart innovation hubs in public schools and some local communities that complement makerspaces. This will also provide more equitable access to technology resources and help bridge the digital divide.
