Maker Faire (Make Magazine/O’Reilly Publications/Ignite)

These three resources (e.g. Make Magazine, O’Reilly Publications, and Ignite) are umbrella by the Maker Fair. It will be inferred that these three sub categories will be covered/referred by the use of the strategic resource Maker Faire, as seen in Figure 1.

OPEN Conference/University Innovation Fellows Meetup 2014

Epicenter's University Innovation Fellows pledge their commitment to engaging students around the country in entrepreneurship, design thinking, innovation, creativity and venture creation. The Fellows gathered in Silicon Valley March 20-22, 2014 to take part in workshops and activities at Google, Stanford University and NCIIA's Open 2014 Conference.

The Manifesto: We believe students can change the world. Our ideas matter. Our efforts can make the difference. Our future depends on it. We believe it lies within all of us. We have the ability: to lead when leadership is required; to exercise humility when not; to collaborate with others on creative solutions; to adapt with our ever-changing environment; and to keep our love of continuous learning alive until our last breath. We are leading a movement across America to bring together engineers and designers, scientists and sociologists, STEM students and liberal artists. Together we will harness our creative potential, invent truly innovative solutions, hone our entrepreneurial mindset and bring our bold ideas to life. Our nation needs us. The time is now. dreamdesigndeliver.org

Western New England University Strategic Priorities Pitch

Our universities always ask the best from us, pushing us to our limits, to the edge of our mental and physical boundaries... I say it is our turn to ask the same from them! Projects 1 and 2 are of highest priority and will be implemented immediately, whereas Projects 3-6 will be ongoing and supplement the success of Projects 1 and 2.
