The Maker Economy

February 28, 2014

Where are the next great innovations going to come from? Some say from so-called "makerspaces" that incubate ideas, and provide the means to turn them into reality. In this edition of Northwest Now, we travel to OlyMega in Olympia, WA to look at where tomorrow's inventors brainstorm and create ideas. That, and an inspiring follow-up to the Carol Decker story - the subject of a KBTC Full Focus documentary.

Program is available online immediately after broadcast.
