In this session, people will first learn about the progress of the Maker Movement and STEAM education implementation in Mexico: we'll discuss the various constrains and opportunities for investment from an international lens. Furthermore, we'll share how El Garage Hub has been implementing workshops, training, makerspace design, and curricula during the past 3 years and how we are working to create a revolution in the education system in Mexico.

We will also share an overview of one of our programs called Science Against Violence, which is being implemented in Imperial Valley, California and the Northwest part of Mexico, where the main objective is to inspire kids to aspire to pursue a STEAM career and to reduce violence and drop-out in low-income communities.
