This October, join us in recognizing the makers, creators and tradespeople who shape our world and our future.
Maker Month is a celebration of those who use their incredible skills for the good of the world––making it better, safer, smarter, more accessible, and more sustainable for the rest of us. But it’s also about shining a light on the trade skills gap, one of the greatest challenges facing our world today, and the estimated 10 million currently unfilled global manufacturing jobs.
