Nick believes the drive to make exists within everyone, whether through yarn, electronics, baking, coding, you name it. This philosophy has deeply influenced his approach to learning and teaching with 11th grade English students, STEAM educators, and makers alike. Join us to learn more and get inspired to make!

When: Wednesday August 31, 2016 4pm – 5pm EST (add it to your calendar)
Where: The Unhangout Room

 

We, as individuals, define the term Maker for ourselves. We determine what a Maker is for us.
