Maker Month is a time to connect the next generation of makers to next-gen opportunities.

This month, we're celebrating makers, creators and tradespeople. Those who use their talent and skills for the good of the world – making it better, safer, smarter, more accessible and more sustainable for the rest of us. Maker Month is also a time to empower and inspire the next generation of makers.
