Marsha Semmel, who participated in Maker Faire Detriot and wrote a piece for our Making Detroit series, has a lovely piece about World Maker Faire on the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences (IMLS) blog.

For IMLS, the maker movement exemplifies the creativity, technological proficiency, innovative problem solving, and STEM learning that characterize the 21st century skills that our people need and that our museums and libraries can promote. In July, we awarded a Museums for America grant to the New York Hall of Science. Queens Makes will extend the Maker Faire spirit among the makers and families of the diverse ethnic and cultural communities of Queens throughout the year, fostering invention, design, and experimental problem solving through a partnership between NYSCI, the Queens Museum of Art and borough residents.
