The world is abuzz with this concept of Makerspaces. Gather some tools and let people make stuff seemed to be a great practice to replicate. Unfortunately not everyone can afford the time, space, or money necessary for a full blown makerspace. The Pathways program developed a six stage pyramid of implementation as a model for implementing these ideas on any budget.
