Building A Nation Of Makers

The Huffington Post – Thomas Kalil

“Recently, the Office of Science and Technology Policy hosted a White House meeting of over 175 organizers of makerspaces. Passionate and creative organizers shared their ideas for building vibrant and inclusive Maker communities in cities and towns across the country. The meeting supported President Obama’s Nation of Makers initiative, which he launched at the first ever White House Maker Faire in 2014. This effort is designed to ensure that more students, entrepreneurs, and Americans of all backgrounds have access to a new class of technologies—such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and desktop machine tools—that are enabling more Americans to design, build, and manufacture just about anything. This initiative was featured in a report of 100 examples of President Obama’s leadership in science, technology, and innovation.”(more)
