The Making in Education Community of Practice met at Brenner Brewing Company on March 9, for our second off-site Meet-Up! Local maker Mike Brenner was a gracious host and even invited us on a brewery tour after the COP meet-up. Information about the Betty Brinn Children's Museum's Be A Maker space, the Making in Education Community of Practice, Maker Faire Milwaukee, and the Museum's outreach and maker initiatives were on the agenda.

Bill and Mike worked with teachers to make slime (Bill) and bread (Mike). We thought that the theme of Kitchen Chemistry would be fun to explore, and yeast of course needed to be involved. I mean, we were in a brewery, after all!

We had a great turnout of local educators, administrators, and college students! Thank you to all for participating, and we look forward to continuing the conversations online via Slack. Speaking of Slack, if you'd like to utilize this FREE resource and be a part of our Community of Practice in a digital way, email bam@bbcmkids.org for an invitation to Slack. It's a great way for teams to share, collaborate, and communicate, and can be used on Mac, PC, and apps for iOS and Android. Best of all, it's FREE!

It was another very successful and educational Community of Practice Meet-Up! Thank you to all who attended, and be sure to click on a photo below to view the slideshow.

We will be back at the Betty Brinn Children's Museum for our meet-up on April 27th.
