Make: Education Forum
Friday, September 22, 2017
10:00 am – 4:00 pm
World Maker Faire New York 2017
New York Hall of Science, Queens, NY

Made possible with the support of:



Exhibitors:

  • Beagleboard

  • Midler Office Furniture

Co-hosted with our partner, New York Hall of Science (NYSCI), the event is Friday, September 22, at the New York Hall of Science, home of World Maker Faire New York, from 10am to 4pm. This year, our focus will be on computational making, rethinking professional development for maker education and how making is not just about creating a makerspace but creating a maker culture.

Hear from educators, makerspace organizers, librarians, local and federal state department representatives, and youth organizations who have developed models and platforms to serve this agenda. If you are an individual who is either formally or informally supporting and/or creating project-based learning programs for kids that support general STEM areas, as educational policy makers, superintendents and principals, or youth programing coordinators, please join us.

Space is limited—register today!

The cost to attend the Make: Education Forum @ Maker Faire is $95.00. As part of your registration, you will receive one ADULT SINGLE DAY PASS to World Maker Faire New York 2017 (good for either Saturday or Sunday entrance) valued at $45.00.
