According to the White House, the United States is celebrating a “National Week of Making” from 6/12-6/18 this year. A National Maker Faire was held in Washington, D.C., on the 12th and 13th, and people all of the country are sharing ideas with the #nationofmakers hashtag. You can go to this link to get ideas on ways to engage in making.
As many of you know, I am a huge proponent of the “maker movement” – especially within our schools. It’s good to see it getting this kind of attention for the 2nd year in a row.
For a list of makers who participated in the National Maker Faire, check out this page. You will see new ideas and new people that you might want to reach out to for “maker” advice.
If you would like some more resources, I have a Pinterest Board full of ideas and links to great websites for Makers!
