When we say that our community comes together to make the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire happen, we really mean it. One amazing example is Katie Tilton, founder of Brain Monkeys. Katie has been an exhibitor at the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire for several years. In addition to this, she is also a sponsor of the Faire. In addition to that, she is also a volunteer! This year she helped deliver thousands of flyers to elementary and middle schools across Ann Arbor and Saline to promote the Faire.
Here’s a little bit more about her organization and Katie herself:
Brain Monkeys was founded by Katie Tilton, a certified school teacher, artist, engineer, inventor and entrepreneur who saw the need to increase the number programs that support discovery based learning.
An education company that teaches robotics, technology, engineering and creative arts to students throughout the Ann Arbor area. Brain Monkeys offers after school classes and individualized tutoring, weekend workshops and make-n-takes, home school and small group classes along with an extensive summer camp program!
Brain Monkeys has supported the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire for the past 5 years and enjoys participating and being a part of the maker community. We believe that discovery based learning is one important approach to education and that the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire inspires makers young and old to continue to learn and create!
