San Mateo, CA
The 12th Annual Maker Faire Bay Area was another great Maker experience. This year was different, as I was not in a booth - I wandered around aimlessly and saw all my favorite Makers and all of their very cool projects. It was really relaxing and inspiring to see what was going on in the Maker community and catch up with friends!
I had a presentation on the Make: Education stage - "Kids + Making = A New Kind of Education," discussing my experience in introducing making to the Lucia Mar School District. It was a great audience that asked a lot of interesting questions. Thanks always to Dale Dougherty, Sheri Huss and the team for another great Faire!
