With the leadership and organizing support of the Austin MakerED Meetup group and Uteach Austin We are excited to hold the inaugural Maker Faire Austin Regional Maker Education Summit!
Read about the summit and then sign up below!
The event brings together leaders in educational innovation and a diverse cross section of Central Texas students to share expertise, resources, and experiences with leveraging the powerful ideas and tools of the Maker Movement in K-16 education.
For educators and attendees the summit will feature panel discussions, hands-on workshops, demonstrations, roundtable discussions, and opportunities to network and connect with industry experts. Students and school groups will have a prominent space on the main floor to showcase their projects, lead demonstrations, and share their own experiences with Maker Educators. Educators can also receive PD credit for attending the AM breakout session.
In recent years, schools and universities across the U.S. have embraced this innovative spirit and are integrating Making as an approach to teaching and learning. As Sean Duffy, founder of Edtech Austin observes, “Creation is a fundamental of learning and there’s no better place for young people to learn, grow, create and innovate than in classrooms that adopt the maker education approach.” This year’s Maker Education Summit is the perfect place for Texas students and teachers to learn, share, and collaborate.
