On Thursday, June 10, members of the Congressional Maker Caucus and IMLS organized the Capitol Hill Maker Faire. The day consisted of four panels on topics such as education and manufacturing followed by a group of 40 makers set up to do demos a room that normally serves as the cafeteria. Members of Congress and their staff along with the public attended the Capitol Hill Maker Faire and interacted with makers. I selected some of the tweets that highlight the conversations that took place on this day.
