CSM is proud to introduce Maker Faire’s first Industry, Career and College Day, hosted in partnership with Cornell University College of Engineering. The event is designed to give upper level high school and university students, makers and enthusiasts an opportunity to explore career paths, education and job opportunities related to making. The event will be held at the San Mateo Event Center on Friday, May 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The opportunity originated through a partnership with Dale Dougherty, founder and CEO of Maker Media, Inc. in Sebastopol, California, and Maker Faire president and creator.

Programming includes a rich lineup of speakers sharing stories of their journeys and visions on the future of Industry. In partnership with Cornell Engineering, a select number of students will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas on stage for a chance to win a special advantage in the Cornell Cup, Cornell’s college-level em¬bedded design competition. A speech will be given by CSM’s President Mike Claire, and welcome efforts are being made by CSM to involve many San Mateo high school students in the event, at no cost to them and includes a free lunch.

This event is open to all local high schools and colleges! ICC is complimentary for upper level, 11-12th grade high school students and college students with valid student I.D’s. Space is limited.
