The Nation Celebrates Making and Makerspaces

The Capitol Hill Maker Faire on June 21 celebrates Making as a part of the National Week of Making, June 17-23. It will be a fun and interactive event for members of the public, members of Congress, and staff.

Hosted by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Chevron and Cognizant, in collaboration with the Congressional Maker Caucus, the event explores the movement driven by hobbyists, tinkerers, crafters, and innovators that is changing the face of informal learning at community institutions and is breathing new life and innovation into American manufacturing.

Join us for the Capitol Hill Maker Faire! Staffers, families, visitors — the event is free and open to the public!
Preceding the Faire, there will a series of panel discussions with leaders of the Maker movement discussing its impact on the economy, education, and community development.
