NoVa Maker Educator Meetup


Are you a Maker Educator, new or experienced? Are you interested in including making into your classroom? Do you want to network with fellow Maker Educators?


Maker Faire NoVa is proud to present its 3rd NoVa Maker Educator Meetup at their Faire on June 2, 2019. It will be an opportunity for Maker Educators to network and learn from their peers in the region. The program will be a mixture of speakers, workshop and networking. Afterwards you can explore the Faire to see making in action.


Educators in both formal and informal settings are welcome. Participants can network with other maker educators with the goal of creating an ongoing NoVa Maker Educator Meetup series.


Make Faire NoVa is in its sixth year. We present makers from the DC metro region, including schools and students. The Faire inspires, informs, connects, and entertains thousands of attendees in a family-friendly environment that showcases invention, creativity and resourcefulness and celebrates the Maker movement. It’s a place where Makers – inventors, technologists, crafters, artists, scientists, and everyone in between – show what they are making and share what they are learning.


Maker Faire is open to the public from 11 am to 5 pm. Educator Meetup participants must register in advance and have a Faire ticket.
