NEW ENGLAND MAKER SUMMIT SPONSORED BY SOLIDWORKS

"HOW MAKING MATTERS"

The New England Maker Summit returns for a second year of celebrating maker skills, cutting-edge innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit.

For 2017, we will explore “How Making Matters” with a deep dive into the advanced technologies and educational techniques that shape how we create, work and learn in the 21st century.

New England Maker Summit Sponsored By SOLIDWORKS is an exposition of creativity, imagination and ingenuity that shines a spotlight on the Maker movement. Curious minds will come together to explore ideas, share knowledge and answer questions:

  • How can companies and the public get involved in the Maker Movement?
  • Where will the future talent pool of Makers come from?
  • Who will create the next startup using 3D Printing, CNC machining or computer-aided casting?
  • What can we do to increase Connecticut’s competitive edge in the global economy?

Join a gathering of learners & leaders, entrepreneurs & teachers, crafters & coders, engineers & artists. New England Maker Summit is a destination for inquisitive and enterprising people who love learning, are eager to share what they do and want to interact with like-minded enthusiasts.
