Maker Faire Speaker Series: Progressive Education

This year we are pleased to present seven speakers who are doing amazing things in the education and making space. The inaugural theme is Progressive Education and each person will speak to the ways they are advancing progressive methods of learning for kids, teachers, those who work within traditional models of pedagogy, and those pioneering new trails.
