Maker Tech Hands On Learning for Educators, August 14-15 in West LA

We are helping the Windward School put together a two day conference in West Los Angeles (near the 10/405 intersection)  for educators on Friday, August 14 and Saturday, August 15, 2015.

The first day will be a lot of overview lectures, panels and exhibits. The second day will be hands-on demonstrations and training in 3D printing, Arduino, wearable tech, MaKey Makey, squishy circuits and more. Many of the topics will be presented at a couple of levels so that you can learn at the level that is right for you.
