The White House has announced the first-ever White House Mini Maker Faire for June 18. In addition to the Makers at the White House, it is hoped June 18 will also be a national “Day of Making.”
The rise of the Maker Movement represents a huge opportunity for the United States, with new tools democratizing production and boosting innovation and entrepreneurship. Making inspires us all to be more creative and motivates people of all ages to excel in design and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
To celebrate the Day of Making in Akron, we invite you to post what you think about the Maker movement: how can access to knowledge about Making and access to the tools of production spur the rebirth in manufacturing right here in Akron, Ohio? What sorts of knowledge would you like to gain, or need to gain to be a better Maker? What tools do you want access to?
