Abstract: 
In this chapter, we seek to contribute to a reflection on cross-generational sharing and learning by presenting a position paper on the potential that the implementation of maker spaces presents in formal and informal educational settings. We first discuss the main characteristics of the maker movement and illustrate some concrete activities that are taking place in Montreal and Quebec City. We then explore to which extent students build knowledge within maker spaces, acquiring knowledge, and competencies through a participatory approach with the extended members of the school community. Our conclusions highlight the great potential that maker spaces hold for the improvement of cross-generational relationships and for the foundation of learning across the lifespan.
