#MakerFaire and #Stem – I prefer #STEAM – on Wednesday, June 18

MAKER FAIRE – June 18!

I am TORN… Technology Conference or Gather a group for a COMMUNITY MAKER event? Follow me on TWITTER @fjkorb to see what my decision is… I do NOT know what to do!

On June 18th, President Obama will host the first-ever White House Maker Faire, to highlight how the Maker Movement and the increasing access to the hardware and software tools it takes to make just about anything, are unleashing new learning opportunities for students and opening new pathways for kids to get interested in STEM. (Check out my students work based on STEAM HERE!)

The 18th will also be a National Day of Making, and we’re encouraging citizen makers around the country to get involved in their communities or plug in virtually using #NationOfMakers. Attached is more information on what you can do to celebrate making on June 18th.

 Follow the action online at http://www.whitehouse.gov/makerfaire.

 #NationOfMakers or via maker@ostp.gov.

 Maker Luncheon at the Technology Conference? Perhaps there is my answer!

 What can YOU do to promote the movement?
