Make: Education Forum
Friday, September 21, 2018

World Maker Faire New York 2018
New York Hall of Science, Queens, NY
An important outcome for maker education is helping more students find meaningful, productive work. At this year’s Education Forum at World Maker Faire NY, we look at how maker educators can help students navigate the future of work–a future that places a premium on curiosity and innovation.
Our speakers and panelists will provide insight into how hands-on learning experiences help develop future-forward skills and mindset. In addition to a presentation program, there will be hands-on sessions available to participants.
