In an effort to spur STEM education activities in Sonoma County and beyond, the reMAKE Education Summit will bring interested parties together August 3-5 in Sanata Rosa, California. The goal of the conference is to provide training and advice to teachers who wish to bring the Maker Movement into their classrooms. The Sonoma County Gazette provides a bit more detail:

Attendees will engage in hands-on making tutorials, hear from renowned speakers, utilize state-of the-art equipment, and hear what’s working best in classrooms around the country. Hands-on sessions will be nothing like the usual abstract conference material. Designed to engage and empower teachers (and their students in turn), they include topics like: building electric vehicles in the classroom; using video apps to tell stories; why girls like engineering; and circuitry and robotics.

This appears to be an excellent opportunity for teachers in the area, at all grade levels, and working in nearly any discipline which might tough upon these topics.
