Fab Play 2020


SAVE THE DATE | June 23-26 | 2020 Summer Institute

As the groundswell of the maker education movement continues, two themes emerge and intersect: the passion of fabrication, and the power of play. We will explore how fabrication and playful learning can combine to create deep, authentic, and motivating learning experiences for us as makers and the students we teach. We designed this institute to both introduce novice makers to best practices and offer makers of any experience level a chance to network and share in the spirit of open making. Come have some fun as we learn from one another in our Northeast Ohio Maker community.

The Objective

Establish a gathering of like-minded maker educators that work as a community to share best practices across multiple platforms, generate new project ideas, and grow as network of Maker-Educators in Northeast Ohio and Nationally.
