MakerShift Midtown 2018
MakerShift Midtown is for adults and children of all ages who are interested in seeing what DIY Creatives and Makers are doing in the Capital Region. Try your hand at flying a micro drone; experience virtual reality first hand, talk with Makers using 3D printers to prototype their ideas or take an interactive tour of the VanGo - a mobile art gallery on wheels!
A day to celebrate local Makers and shift public conversations toward exploring S.T.E.A.M. education for 21st Century life and work.
Date: May 5, 2018 ; Time: 10AM - 3PM
Select venues along Third Street in Midtown Harrisburg between Forester and Riley Streets.
Innovations in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) are dramatically changing the way we all live, work and play in the 21st Century. However, not everyone is aware of what is happening and may even be fearful of change. More local events that publicly celebrate and discuss S.T.E.A.M. innovations are needed in order to realize the potential positive impacts of these changes on our lives and communities as well as to reduce the damage that can result from poor public education.
