Get Ready for the National Week of Making, June 17 - 23!

Find resources to help you plan a great event at https://www.whitehouse.gov/nation-of-makers

Also, consider doing any of the following activities:

  • Post a photo about the #NationOfMakers – lots of folks are already active online and there are even some community-created images created by Adam Bellow that can be found below.
  • Organize an event and/or host an open house at your local school, library, rec center, makerspace or set up a hangout online to connect and share your inventions with Makers across the country. Some have posted their events on a community website such as weekofmaking.org
  • Volunteer to be a mentor for someone who is interested in learning a new skill or find a mentor who would be interested in teaching a new skill you’ve been wanting to learn for a while.
  • Organize a maker roundtable, maker town hall, or maker tour to convene thought leaders and decision makers in your community. (An example of this is what Adam Savage did last week in Cleveland: http://bit.ly/1N3g6oB - which was organized by Adam’s team at Tested in collaboration with Lisa Camp from Case Western Reserve University and Sonya Prior-Jones of the Fab Foundation out of MIT – Adam is actually talking about it live today during a Reddit AMA you can follow here: redd.it/4hv3an)
