Event Details

Give your students a chance to make--and a place to do it--and help them really learn something along the way.

On September 10, the "MENTOR Makerspace” program will host a launch event for its ten pilot high schools in the Bay Area and jump start the U.S. Department of Education's third annual back-to-school bus tour.

This event will highlight the importance of creating laboratories for innovation, or "Makerspaces" in education. Under Secretary for the Department of Education, Martha J. Kanter, and Director of the Office of Education Technology Karen Cator, will inaugurate the event. The MENTOR Makerspace program promotes the collaborative practices of making in high schools.

EdSurge, the leading news site on education-technology innovation
is cohosting the event with the MENTOR grantees, O'Reilly Media and Otherlab.

Our event begins at 3:45 pm with some Maker-related activities and will include remarks by officials from the U.S. Department of Education, the Makerspace initiative and other groups. Bring your enthusiasm for connecting making activities, science and technology education, and hands-on learning. We'll explore how to help the Makerspace initiative blossom in our schools and libraries. 

We invite you to join us for this momentous occasion in Makerspace and educational progress!

Open to: educators, business & school leaders and parents
