Bulletin Makes First Maker Faire Appearance
What a great weekend in D.C. for Bulletin at the National Maker Faire 2016! It was an incredible opportunity for us to meet with Makers, government agencies, schools and universities, libraries, makerspaces, and more.
The Faire kicked off the National Week of Making, June 17–23, a celebration of the Maker Movement across the country. The week was acknowledged by President Obama and the White House for the incredible accomplishments of Makers across the nation and the value they bring to our country’s future.
In fact, we had to opportunity to meet leaders of the movement that will shape the future of our nation through hands-on learning and new curriculum in schools, innovative problem solving across all industries, reimagined manufacturing, and more. Making is becoming a part of our every day lives, and Maker Faire is the best place to gather and celebrate making.
