Make: Day of Making

We are a nation of makers, hackers, and out-of-the-box thinkers. We don’t just consume, we create. It’s in our nature as individuals to take the materials around us and make them into things that are completely new. We support the national Day of Making, and we want to ensure that everybody who wants to participate has access to all the tools and techniques they need.

In recognition of the history of American innovation, craftsmanship and entrepreneurship, President Barack Obama in 2014 declared June 18 the National Day of Making. The President's Nation of Makers initiative is a call to action for companies, colleges, communities and citizens to join the White House in lifting up makers and builders and doers across the country. In 2015, the Obama White House expanded these activities to a Week of Making from June 12-18, an event that coincides with the National Maker Faire in Washington D.C.
