Proud of TechShop's role in supporting students in the Maker Movement.
 
Giving students access to high-tech, hands-on learning opportunities continues to be a priority. Additionally, technology allows for increased creativity and can promote the type of innovative thinking that will help us solve the world’s great challenges.  The “Maker” Movement continues to emerge as the collective push forward for this type of activity that includes using 3D printing, laser cutters, open-source coding boards and other high tech tools to innovate.  This movement presents an opportunity for students everywhere to come face-to-face with innovation.
 
Maker spaces also present an incredibly fruitful opportunity for collaboration that brings crucial stakeholders together from K-12 and higher education as well as industry.  These partnerships hold the potential for innovative solutions to regional economic development.
 
As we approach our 3rd anniversary at STEMconnector®, the Maker movement continues to gather strength in a de-centralized, grassroots way. We do observe some trends and major players that we believe merit our audience’s attention.  We invite you to join us for a Town Hall on November 12th to discuss the Maker Movement and how it is impacting STEM education.  We will hear from the following speakers and organizations.
 
1)   Fab Foundation – Sherry Lassiter, Director

2)   Arizona State University – Dr. Mitzi Montoya, Vice President & University Dean for Entrepreneurship & Innovation

3)   Chevron Corporation – Blair Blackwell, Manager, Education and Corporate Programs

4)   Albemarle Public Schools – Chad Ratliff, Director of Instructional Programs

5)   Invent to Learn – Sylvia Libow Martinez, Author

6)   Maker Ed - Warren Lathe, Executive Director

7)   TechShop – Carrie Motamedi, Vice President of Marketing

8)   Teach for America – Melissa Moritz, Vice President, Education Initiatives

9)   STEMconnector® - Ted Wells, Chief Strategy Officer
 
Please join us on a Google+ Hangout On-Air on November 12 from 1:00-2:30pm ET.  The Hangout will be viewable on our site at STEMconnector.org/townhall  We will also hold a chat via Twitter and Google+ using the hashtag #MakerSTEM
