The BizTimes talked about us recently: Maker Faire Milwaukee promotes stem in family fun event, and offered an overview from Maker Faire Producer Carrie Wettstein:
“The impact of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) has been shown in classroom after classroom,” she noted. “Students are motivated to learn on their own, to problem-solve and to be collaborative and creative. The museum and the Faire are helping to develop skills in students for the jobs of the future.”
Betty Brinn Children’s Museum along with Milwaukee Makerspace are excited to be going into our fourth year of bringing STEAM experiences to the community. Once again Maker Faire Milwaukee will be a free event and welcome thousands of people throughout the weekend to the Wisconsin State Fair Grounds on September 23rd and 24th, 2017.
“The maker movement encourages learning by doing, sharing and collaboration, self-motivation and experimentation,” Wettstein said. “In addition to work being done by Milwaukee Makerspace, Betty Brinn Children’s Museum and our other collaborative partners, the Maker Faire promotes that experience in the form of a fun, family-friendly event for people of all ages.”
