Explore why Making and STEAM makes a different in children's lives

The Maker Movement hit another stride today when the White House announced that they are doing to have a mini-maker faire AT the White House! So, what is Making? Why is so important? Join educators and parents at The Exploratory - an Imagination Lab for Children, An Innovation Lab for Adults and a Community Maker Space for All to find out what all the fuss is about. The Exploratory has been providing Making programs around Los Angeles for 3 years. It is the Los Angeles partner with Make Magazines's Maker Education Initiative through the Maker Corp and Americorp Maker Vista program. The Exploratory and Maker Education Initiative are creating the Los Angeles Maker Hub to position Los Angeles as a leader in this movement. Jean Kaneko, the Chief Tinkerer at The Exploratory will present what Making looks like in schools and libraries. You will have a chance to see what a sample maker space looks like. Here about the work being done with educators around the city. Learn how you can get involved as a family, as an adult Maker or a supporter of innovative education. Lets talk about how to make Los Angeles a major leader in revolutionizing education!! For adults please… We will have other opportunities for you to bring your children to check out the space. This evening is for us to brainstorm and dream.

    Not exactly as advertised. Didn't get into why making and steam makes a difference to children, which was the stated purpose.

      You can come by on tues to sun from 12-6 to check out the space. If you decide to do a project there is a project fee otherwise it'd free to too around. It's just too hard for parents to focus when the kids r so excited. So if you want to know more about our programs. I encourage you to come on the 18th.
