Making and Tinkering Affinity Group Meeting

  • Butterfly Bar (at the Vortex) 2307 Manor Rd Austin, TX, 78722 United States (map)

Are you an educator who is interested in starting Maker activities with your students? Maybe you're already running a Makerspace and want to share your knowledge and meet other makers. Join us for a laid-back meeting where we network with Austin's Maker Educators and find out how we can support each other. 

Topics that we will discuss include:

  • Austin Maker Faire - Coming up on May 16th and 17th, this will be our last Affinity Group meeting before the Faire, we can answer last minute questions, help with logistics, and make sure you have everything you need to have an amazing experience.
  • Preview the Maker Education Meetup's School's Out For Summer Bash (mark your calendar, it's going to all go down on Friday, June 5th!).
  • Plans for summer - it's a great time to plan some field trips to visit some Central Texas Makers. Road trip to San Antonio, anyone?
  • Who else should be here? - We want to make sure we're reaching a diverse group of representatives from the Maker Education community in Austin. Bring a friend and let's talk about who else to invite to future events. 
  • Whatever else is on your mind! 

We'll be meeting at the Butterfly Bar on Thursday, April 23rd from 5:30-7:30. Find us outside assuming the weather is nice - look for our sign and our smiling faces!
