North State Maker Educator Meetups

Bay Area Maker Educator Meetups Are Coming to the North State!

We are collaborating with Turtle Bay Exploration Park to bring a new opportunity to the North State: North State Maker Educator Meetups!

Maker Educator Meetups (MEMs) are an opportunity to meet with like minded educators so we can learn from each other. The goals of MEMs are support, networking, and equity — bringing design and making to all youth. During these bi-monthly meetups, we will share with each other, provide support, network, and even do a little making.

Over the past year, we’ve been attending the Bay Area Maker Educator Meetups and have found them to be an invaluable resource for learning and inspiration related to making in the classroom.  Thanks to Turtle Bay, we now have a way to offer these same experiences for rural teachers and school leaders in the north state.

The Meetups will be informal in nature and free for educators interested in learning about the maker education movement and how they can incorporate hands on learning activities in their classroom.  Each event will focus on a particular type of activity and promises to be fun and engaging.

The first North State MEM will be held on February 18, 2016 from 6 to 8 pm in the classroom at Turtle Bay Exploration Park.  Those interested in learning more are encouraged to register below.

Seating is limited, so be sure and reserve your spot now via this form.
