Maker Faire happens in many cities and is an interactive and educational event that offers a hands-on experience for participants and attendees. How could something like this be applied to encourage youth to acquire skills and information?

Emily Pilloton brought impactful design to people via a "roadshow" experience, which allowed people to connect with design in new and accessible ways. How might this idea create awareness and encourage accessibility in the voting/election process?

Kara commented on Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

Love this, Ashley. I especially like the idea of a mentor who had no sons or daughters but could "adopt" a young person to bring to work. And think about those young people who have no parent that is able to support this idea but had a desire to go to work with a professional? Shadowing is such a powerful experience.

Cool to hear, Monera. Love the idea of sharing as it relates to the success factors of this challenge. Sometimes overlooked when we want to encourage success, right?
