White House Announces First Maker Faire

Loredana Carson's insight:
White House Announces First Maker Faire

 

 

The Obama administration is trying to promote a generation of students who are “makers of things, not just consumers of things.” To encourage this, the White House has announcedplans to hold its first annual Maker Faire later this year (exact date to be determined). 

 

According to the White House, “[b]y democratizing the tools and skills necessary to design and make just about anything,” events such as the Maker Faire can inspire invention and entrepreneurial activities in more people who may then pursue careers related to science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM). 

 

The administration plans to launch a comprehensive effort to enable students and entrepreneurs to access the tools, facilities, and expertise that can assist them to be inventive and productive. This effort will feature a variety of opportunities for individual Makers and for institutions from the corporate and public sectors, academia, and philanthropic organizations to get involved. 

 

For example: 

 

Companies might work with schools, including after-school activities, by giving some of their employee’s time to help set up “Maker-spaces,” serve as mentors, and help attract customers to Maker start-ups.Communities, either through their officials or at the grass-roots level, might design or develop special districts where entrepreneurs are attracted to create jobs and innovative activities.Universities could give credit for life experiences by incorporating “Maker portfolios” into their admissions process. They could also have their employees help set up “Maker-spaces” and serve as mentors on campus, in schools, or in their local communities. They might also conduct research related to the development of hardware and software tools.Foundations and philanthropists could offer matching grants to communities that are involved in “Making,” especially efforts that ensure the inclusion of girls and under-represented minorities.

 

The Maker Faire builds on ongoing initiatives, such as that of the Defense Advanced Projects Agency, which work with the Veteran’s Administration to help establish TechShop Pittsburgh. This is a 21st-century apprenticeship program in manufacturing, working with and through startups that provides access to cutting-edge tools for veterans. It is funded by the Department of Labor, the AFL-CIO, and Carnegie Mellon University. 

 

Creations by budding Makers, descriptions, questions, and ideas can be emailed tomaker@ostp.gov/. In addition, photos and videos of creations can be posted on Twitter using the hashtag #IMadeThis.
