Seven Makerspace Makers and Facilitators received the “Spirit of Detroit” award for sharing their knowledge and experiences with alternative energy technologies such as solar cells and wind turbines. During the summer, the Makerspace participated in several events where we set up fun, hands-on “make your own” exhibits to help demystify the operation and usefulness of these technologies.
- East Side People’s Festival
- Maker Faire Detroit 2011
- MEBCA Day Celebration
- Detroit Youth Green Economy Summit
Thank you to Councilman Ken Cockrel and Roshani Dantas from the Detroit City Council Green Task Force for helping make all of this happen! It means so much to our makers to be recognized for all their hard work.
