Sonoma State University's School of Education was invited to the White House Friday morning to discuss the Obama administration's Maker Schools Alliance. U.S. Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith and Maker movement founder Dale Doughtery were among the those speaking at the conference, which included representatives from a wide variety of groups like the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, the World Bank and many others.
"It was an honor to be one of the 100 invitees to this conference," said Carlos Ayala, Dean of the School of Education at Sonoma State. "Everyone needs equal access to the economic engine of the United States. This conference demonstrated that Making is a path that is clearly focused on that goal."
