The Maker Educator Convening is an annual gathering of maker education practitioners from all over the world, organized by Maker Ed. This year, the event will take place in Pittsburgh, PA, in collaboration with MuseumLab at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. We are committed to further exploring last year’s themes—equity, accessibility, and sustainability in maker education—over two full days of sharing, collaboration, and delicious food. We hope you will join us! To register and for more information, visit Maker Ed’s website.

Diane is passionate about the potential of makerspaces to improve education. She works intensively to support teachers integrating maker into their regular curriculum and in using makerspaces to engage and empower students. Her formal technical training includes a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Princeton University and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT. Working as a product design consultant at several engineering companies, she developed skills in creative problem solving, project management, and fabrication. Diane went into education as a career after serving as an instructor for summer programs at the Edgerton Center. She returned to MIT with 15 years of experience in teaching technology, engineering design, computer science, and general science in public middle and high-school classrooms. Her favorite maker activities are physical computing with Arduino or Microbit. For fun she runs a program called Robosail - where kids learn to code by programming autonomous sailboats.
