Educators and Hackers from around the world gather to research and develop Maker Education!

MES is a mini-conference, historically as an invite-only event and now as a public event. University professors and students from US meetup with hackers from Asia, and combine powers!

We’ll be based at the Open FIESTA space in Tsinghua University’s Shenzhen campus, but traveling all over Shenzhen on tours and workshops.

Professors: interested in understanding the state of innovative education in Shenzhen, and how schools are able to pack so much technology and design into their programs.

Hackers: the ultimate driving force behind the technology and design programs, the source of the culture and technical knowledge.

This event is created by people that Do. The attendees all have active Maker Education needs and projects to fullfill. When you you join, you’ll be part of the organizational and scheduling process, and expected to promote your projects and agenda!

We won’t be talking at you in speeches, and we won’t be teaching you a list of 5 things to study to become successful. Join us and Make!
