Almost 400 people trained in maker education

On 20 and 21 October, we again organized a Teacher Maker Camp at the Waag, this time together with Cubiss. Teacher Maker Camp is an inspiring technical and creatively challenging training for teachers and library staff. Learning by making is the main target of this multiple-day training. Participants get the chance to learn about new digital skills and techniques, like 2D and 3D designing, vinyl and laser cutting, robotics and 3D printing.

With our Teacher Maker Camps and similar formats, we now have reached almost 400 people in 13 editions, that we helped finding their way in making, digital fabrication and maker education.
