Get involved #NationOfMakers #WeekofMaking @NationOfMakers

National week of making invites you to embrace your inner tinkerer! Be inspired and get involved! Via WeekofMaking.org

Building on last year’s National Week of Making, this year’s Week will highlight the diversity of Makers big and small, young and old, urban and rural. The Week of Making is an opportunity to for individuals in communities throughout the U.S. to participate in Making activities locally, celebrating the innovation, ingenuity and creativity of Makers.

Makers are developing new solutions and products for pressing challenges, engaging students in hands on, interactive learning of STEM, arts, and design, and enabling individuals to learn new skills in fabrication and manufacturing. This site was created by Nation of Makers to support, encourage, promote, and highlight organizations from around the country who are working to create more opportunities for more people of all ages to make.

Mission Vision Nation of Makers

Via Nation of Makers

Our mission is to support the full range of organizations that impact makers by encouraging connections, broadly sharing resources, facilitating funding opportunities, engaging in policy development, and advocating for the maker movement. We help maker organizations amplify the passion, innovation, creativity, and diversity of the maker community, to maximize both local and global impact.

The vision of Nation of Makers is to build a society where everyone has access to the tools, technologies, experiences and knowledge to make anything; to create a thriving, connected, and inclusive community of practice where collaboration fosters a culture of abundance.
