How and why could a Maker Space or FabLab benefit your student?
Join us for a conversation to share ideas and experiences with others on the same journey. This workshop is an opportunity for you to learn what others are doing, and share what you’ve been working on, have seen working well elsewhere, or would like to try. More importantly, we’ll connect you with others on a similar path and those may be of help along the way.
Among others, you’ll get a chance to talk with:
