Education is one of the primary directives of the Dallas MakerSpace. Our committee is to assist and further this goal.
The Education committee consists of 3 primary divisions:

  1. Classroom facilities. Making sure there are monitors, projectors, cables, power strips, video adaptors, sound, white boards... Everything to promote a learning environment and support the teachers.
  2. Calendar Software. It is more than scheduling classes, events, and rooms. Open-source, developed for the MakerSpace. Managing requirements and development is part of this too.
  3. Teacher Development. Helping teachers begin at the MakerSpace, and helping them become better teachers.
