After a great Educators Program at Maker Faire Milwaukee, the Making in Education Community of Practice hosted the first Meet-Up at the Be A Maker space at the Betty Brinn Children's Museum on October 13, 2016. This event focused on the early stages of beginning to establish a community and some time for adults to try out a project/design challenge that we normally teach to children. Sometimes it's fun to act like a kid!

Community members were introduced to our field trip program Be A Maker: Mega-Fort and challenged to work together to build a free-standing fort using only dowel rods and plastic tube connectors that each member of the group could fit inside of. Sounds simple, but can be a bit more challenging than you may think.
