Intel Inspiring Minds at Southwest MakerFest

Posted By Lisa H, Friday, April 3, 2015

Intel considers themselves to be a company founded by makers, so it was no surprise to see them last Saturday at the Southwest MakerFest. In it’s second year, this tremendously successful event works to bring together creative people to share innovative ideas, new designs and ongoing projects with other like-minded people. Maker culture stems from the DIY movement and is rooted in technology and engineering. Practices range from robotics to welding, electronics to traditional arts and crafts.

Communications Manager, Rachel Sutherland, explains Intel’s involvement: “The maker community is such a perfect fit for Intel and Intel employees. It’s just this wide open forum where anything goes. You can apply your creativity and ingenuity and make things happen. Making is very near and dear to Intel because we have so many makers within our ranks.”
