It’s probably safe to say that most people in the Maker Faire community think that making is a pretty awesome way to learn, work and play. But it’s still a huge deal when the White House declares an entire week focused on making!
Last Friday, President Obama reaffirmed his commitment to making as a critical strategy for learning, innovation, and building the economy. The National Week of Making runs June 12-18 and kicked off with the National Maker Faire in Washington, D.C. and programs all over the country.
So, this week is a great time to get involved in maker activities at home, at school, or in your community! If you’re looking for things to do, check out the Week of Making site for activities in your area, or check out MAKE or Instructables for things to do year-round.
And if you haven’t already, sign up to be a maker at our Faire – the deadline has been extended to June 22nd!
Happy Week of Making, everyone!
