noon-1pm Plussing session. Plussing sessions are an opportunity to share you in-progress project with other project teams.
1pm-2pm Featured Maker talks, followed by discussion. Each month we’ll have a few accomplished makers on hand to talk about some of their projects, how they got started making, and what they’ve learned along the way. The topics will roughly follow the monthly themes.
