"How To Put Making To Work For You"

What are Makers? Makers are multi-disciplinary problem-solvers who face obstacles with creativity and find innovative, out-of-the-box solutions.

At the New England Maker Summit, you will learn how educational venues, libraries, businesses, and manufacturers can invest in Making today so Connecticut creates an innovative, effective workforce with Maker skills for tomorrow.

  • Listen, learn, and interact with those who have paved the way.
  • Featured Education Track Speakers: Cristol Kapp, school librarian from Chattanooga, TN; Gene Sherman, founder of Vocademy in Riverside, CA; Casey LaPlante, library media specialist at Granby High School.

BUSINESS & MANUFACTURING TRACK
