The chapter closes with the presentation of three characteristic maker personas. Chapter 5 studies the existing types of makerspaces and explains the differences between them. The chapter also includes the analysis of a selection of nine representative makerspaces with different characteristics, and develops a system to compare said spaces qualitatively within a common background. It is followed by Chapter 6, which presents the questionnaires prepared and delivered in order to measure the overall effect of MakerSpace on its users.The obtained results of Chapters 5 and 6 are discussed in Chapter 7. This chapter also summarizes the difficulties encountered during the realization of the investigation.
