About your Facilitator:I have been running a maker education program for kids and educators for 20 years and have learned a lot along the way. Other educators will present along with me for this session.
Make: has been a vanguard of the maker movement with the publication of its namesake magazine for over 16 years and its network of Maker Faires. We have two goals: one is to increase the number of people who are exposed to making and become makers, and two is to share the wide variety of projects that makers create and show their contribution to our society. We believe it is essential that more and more youth are provided access to the tools, materials, concepts, and support to grow as makers through opportunities in both formal and informal learning in their local community.
