New Maker Initiative Launching At COSI This Summer

At the 2013 White House Science Fair this week, President Obama spoke about the new commitments in the Educate to Innovate campaign, including the Maker Corps initiative. "This summer, the Maker Education Initiative will launch the first-ever Maker Corps. These volunteers will give more young people the opportunity to design and build something that is personally meaningful to them. In its first year, over 100 Maker Corps members - in 19 states and Washington D.C. - will work with 34 partner organizations such as schools, libraries, and science centers."

COSI is one of the organizations chosen to participate. We will host three Maker Corps members, so come make something with us this summer!

Paloma Garcia-Lopez, Executive Director of the maker Education Initiative, was there - http://makered.org/2013/04/maker-education-initiative-announces-summer-campaign-at-the-white-house/
