Super excited about this one >>> and I hope every BAME member out there gets to take advantage of this -- Arrive by BART and your entire class (and chaperons) gets into the Exploratorium for free. It's a pilot project we're running from Oct-Jan. See the link for more info and message me if you've got other questions....

Join us on the evening of 9/28 for our kickoff North Bay Maker Educator meetup for the 2017-18 school year for an evening of sharing maker educator wisdom and learning a simple setup for screen printing! Hosted by the amazing Sara Bolduc of the CEC Makerspace/Media Studio in the Hamilton neighborhood of Novato, we hope this central location to both Marin and Sonoma will be close enough for many educators to join us! Snacks and a light dinner option will be provided. Feel free to bring a flat material like a cotton t-shirt to screenprint, and we will also have free blank totebags for printing as well. Note that the CEC Makerspace does have a student program running until 6:00pm, hence the 6:15 meetup start time. Feel free to invite other interested educators from the North Bay!
