Today the National Week of Making 2019 starts and will run from June 21st, 2019 to June 27th, 2019. The event has been created to celebrate and encourage makers from the “supportive communities to the ingenious solutions makers help foster new ideas and creativity”.
“Building on last year’s National Week of Making, this year’s Week will highlight the diversity of Makers big and small, young and old, urban and rural. 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. This site was created by Nation of Makers to support, encourage, promote, and highlight organisations from around the country who are working to create more opportunities for more people of all ages to make.”
“Are you a Maker with an innovative project or an interesting story? Do you know someone who has been an amazing advocate for supporting the Maker community in your city or town? If so, we want to get to know him/her. In the run up to the Week of Making, we’ll be featuring profiles of incredible Makers, Maker Educators and Maker Advocates across the U.S. on the Week of Making site.”
