Taiwan’s government has made a prolonged effort in fostering creativity in students. This research aims to conduct in-depth interviews with makers who have set up leading makerspaces in formal and informal educational systems in Taiwan, and to explore the context of these spaces which help people to develop creativity and innovation skills. Simultaneously, the researcher also analysed the successful experiences of famous creative learning environments (e.g. the MIT Media Lab) in cultivating creative people and further learned from their ideas and operating models.
