A little about Cricut Design Space: it's the software that communicates with the Cricut Maker and Cricut Explore. All Cricut projects must first be uploaded into Design Space before the machine can get to work. When you begin a Makerspace session, the Library will provide you a laptop with Cricut Design Space already uploaded, all you have to do is log in!
