he mission of the Maker Education Initiative is to create more opportunities for young people to make, and, by making, build confidence, foster creativity, and spark interest in science, technology, engineering, math, the arts—and learning as a whole. We want young people to join—and eventually lead—the growing Maker Movement.
We are launching the Maker Education Initiative at Maker Faire Bay Area (May 19-20, 2012). Our goal is to build on the excitement and inspiration of Maker Faire and explore working with partners in our community to promote more opportunities for children and teens to participate in making activities and develop their own projects as makers.
