3rd Annual Capitol Hill Maker Faire
The Nation Celebrates the Maker Movement! The Capitol Hill Maker Faire on June 12, 2018 celebrates the American Maker movement as a part of the National Week of Making, June 11-17, 2018. It will be a fun and interactive event for members of the public, members of Congress, and staff.
Hosted by the Nation of Makers along with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and in collaboration with the Congressional Maker Caucus, the event explores the movement driven by engineers, hobbyists, tinkerers, crafters, artists, entrepreneurs and innovators that is changing the face of education, is breathing new life and innovation into American manufacturing, and is strengthening American communities and their economy.
Register for the Capitol Hill Maker Faire! Staffers, families, visitors — the event is free and open to the public of all ages!
Preceding the Faire, there will a series of panel discussions with leaders of the Maker movement discussing its impact on the economy, education, and community development. Follow this link to register for the panels.
