The First-Ever White House Maker Faire: Celebrating a Nation of Makers #NationOfMakers @whitehouse

The First-Ever White House Maker Faire: Celebrating a Nation of Makers @ The White House.

.. on June 18, the President is hosting the first-ever White House Maker Faire, which will feature Makers, innovators, and entrepreneurs of all ages who are using cutting-edge tools to bring their ideas to life. These projects will delight and amaze us, and some may very well create industries and jobs of the future. 

The Administration also wants to ensure that we make the most of these opportunities.  We are working with companies, mayors, colleges, libraries, museums, and many others that are striving to answer the President’s call to support a generation of Americans who are “makers of things, not just consumers of things.”

In addition to the Makers who will be at the White House, we want June 18 to be a nationwide Day of Making when communities across America share and celebrate their involvement in this movement. On Twitter, we’ll be using #NationOfMakers and encourage you to use it as well, to share all the amazing work going on around the country and to connect with other Makers like you.
