In June, President Obama hosted the first-ever White House Maker Faire to celebrate America's students and entrepreneurs who are inventing the future with new technologies such as 3D printers, laser cutters, easy-to-use design software, and desktop machine tools. The event brought together more than 100 students, entrepreneurs, engineers, and researchers from 25 states ­all of whom love to "Make" stuff.

We hope you can "Make" it to Wednesday's event and join the conversation live from the White House Kitchen Garden.
