Join the Franklin Institute’s Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts in conversation with founder of MAKE magazine and Maker Faire, Dale Dougherty. Since launching MAKE Magazine in 2005, Dougherty’s work has inspired a worldwide tech-influenced DIY community to invent and innovate, leading to Maker Faires around the world and a new renaissance of industry in America. The Maker Movement continues to grow as makers with varied interests master new technologies, discover new opportunities, and create new communities. In this engaging program, explore the history of makers in America, discover the impact that the Maker Movement has had on technologies of today, and look toward the future of industry through the lens of the master maker himself.
This event in The Franklin Institute Speaker Series is free and open to the public, with advance registration required. Details here: bit.ly/2wBbym8
