MAKE unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages. Each summer, we're excited to offer Maker Camp right here on Google+.
Introduction

MAKE celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. The MAKE audience continues to be a growing culture and community that believes in bettering ourselves, our environment, our educational system — our entire world. This is much more than an audience, it's a worldwide movement that Make is leading — we call it the Maker Movement.
