Pepperdine U to Establish International Network of Makerspace Clubs - Rhea Kelly, Campus Technology

A four-year project at Pepperdine University will work to establish a network of 12 makerspace clubs in the United States, Europe and Africa. Led by Eric Hamilton, professor and interim associate dean of education at the university, the effort received a $1.72 million grant from the National Science Foundation's Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) program, a funding program that "seeks to advance new approaches to and evidence-based understanding of the design and development of STEM learning opportunities for the public in informal environments; provide multiple pathways for broadening access to and engagement in STEM learning experiences; and advance innovative research on and assessment of STEM learning in informal environments," according to the NSF website. https://campustechnology.com/articles/2016/12/20/pepperdine-u-to-establish-international-network-of-makerspace-clubs.aspx
