What we're about

This group meets at SteamHead, a community design center, to discuss MakerEd as it applies to: International Schools, Public Schools, After School Centers, and Hobbyists.

Generally, you bring your own project to work on, and there are lots of people who can help. If you don't have a project, you are welcome to come work on improving the maker space for everyone!

Our members include teachers with experience who are willing to share lesson plans and material sources. Feel free to stop by and see what we are working on!

Educators and Hackers from around the world gather to research and develop Maker Education! MES is a mini-conference, historically as an invite-only event and now as a public event.
