At the 2012 CGI America Meeting, AnnMarie Thomas (Maker Education Initiative) and Mark Greenlaw (Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation) announce a new CGI America Commitment to Action by Maker Education Initiative, Cognizant, and Intel.
MAKER CORPS: BUILDING THE NEXT GENERATION OF INNOVATORS In 2012, The Maker Education Initiative and its partners committed to creating the Maker Corps, which will train and employ 1,400 college aged mentors, 50 site coordinators, and 3 national staff by 2015. The Maker Corps members will be trained to serve as mentors and engage children in hands-on "Maker" projects that will help develop problem-solving skills in ways that make science and technology fun. Over the life of the commitment, the Maker Corps program will be established in a minimum of 50 locations and give a total of 140,000 children the opportunity to develop the creativity and technical skills needed to be part of the modern workforce.
