The Maker Movement is celebrating the National Week of Making from June 16 to June 22, 2017. The week of events highlighting making is being led by Nation of Makers in collaboration with other organizations in the maker community. The purpose is to showcase the diversity, creativity and ingenuity of makers across the United States.
CCC Maker colleges and others in the Maker Movement are engaging students in hands-on, real world learning experiences, fostering local manufacturing, empowering more people to become entrepreneurs and making it possible for individuals to creatively solve important problems in their communities.
