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.

Leilani Roser

MIT Edgerton Center
Maker Educator
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Leilani Roser began her life in STEM as a field research assistant while earning her BS in Biological Sciences at UC Davis. Pipetting drugs onto cells proved less thrilling than trapping and tracking wild mammals, so she became a teacher. Leilani received her MEd in Science Education from UMass Boston and has now worked in STEM education as a teacher and consultant since 2009, including 3 years teaching Biology in Boston Public Schools.

On the K12 Maker Team Edgerton Center, she works with Diane Brancazio as a teacher coach, curriculum writer, Maker Methodology developer, and unrepentant wood hoarder. Off-duty, she can be found teaching drums and electronics to the next generation of musicians and gearheads at Girls Rock Campaign Boston.
