Mayor William Peduto today celebrates the first day of the National Week of Making, drawing attention to Pittsburgh’s vibrant ecosystem of makers, and announcing new considerations in response to President Obama’s call-to-action to support a generation of Americans who are “makers of things not just consumers of things.”
Throughout the region, new tools – things like 3D printers, laser cutters, and advanced software design programs – are increasingly giving everyday citizens the ability to make just about anything. This renaissance in American manufacturing may have profound benefits for entrepreneurs, students, and citizens of all ages and backgrounds.
In response to the President’s call to action, Mayor Peduto is proud to draw attention to Pittsburgh’s vibrant community of makers and announce new considerations and commitments from local stakeholders to expand this work:
  • The Mayor’s Office will explore possibilities to provide better support to the larger maker community.
  • Event organizers will publicly release a call for makers to participate in the first-ever Maker Faire Pittsburgh
  • The Sprout Fund will premiere the Remake Learning Playbook
  • The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh will announce the ten schools chosen to participate in the pilot stage of the project, “Kickstarting Making in Schools.”
  • The Remake Learning Council will convene local maker stakeholders to advance the collective agenda for “Pittsburgh Makes.”
  • Maker leaders from the region will join colleagues from other major cities to form the American Maker Cities (AMC) North.
