Creating a Maker Culture at NASA

Responding to the President's Call, a New Effort to Help More Students be Makerse, OSTP Blog

"As the President said at the launch of his Educate to Innovate campaign to improve science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, "I want us all to think about new and creative ways to engage young people in science and engineering, whether it's science festivals, robotics competitions, fairs that encourage young people to create and build and invent -- to be makers of things, not just consumers of things." That's why today, we are excited to highlight a new effort that responds to the President's call to action: the Maker Education Initiative (MEI). With leadership from Dale Dougherty, a White House Champion of Change and founder of Maker Faire, MEI has founding sponsorship from Cognizant, Intel, and O'Reilly Media."
