Looking for something to do this summer? How about a summer job where you can be a mentor to future makers?
One of the newest projects from the people who brought you Maker Faire is the Maker Education Initiative. This new non-profit initiative has just launched Maker Corps, a summer program for young adult makers. If you are accepted into this competitive program, you will work at one of one of dozens of host sites around the country (including OMSI in Portland) to present maker-centered educational programs for kids. (In other words, the coolest summer job ever!)
Find out more about Maker Corps on their website, or read about some of this summer’s host sites on their blog. Applications are due March 1st. We’re very excited to see how this program takes off in its inaugural year. Inspiring the next generation of makers is a mission we can really get behind!
