Monday 6/11-6/17 - National Week of Making

The Week of Making is an opportunity to for individuals in communities throughout the U.S. to participate in Making activities locally, celebrating the innovation, ingenuity and creativity of Makers.

Makers are developing new solutions and products for pressing challenges, engaging students in hands on, interactive learning of STEM, arts, and design, and enabling individuals to learn new skills in fabrication and manufacturing.

The Maker Movement is driven by engineers, hobbyists, tinkerers, crafters, artists, entrepreneurs and innovators and is changing the face of education, breathing new life and innovation into American manufacturing and strengthening American communities.
