January 13th - Meet Your MakerSpace
Did you know that 32% of Angelenos rely on public libraries as their main source of high speed internet? Sunday, January 13th, Mya Stark will be joining us to tell us how LA MakerSpace is refocusing their mission to bring creators, scientists, tinkerers and educators together to create camps for these underserved students. What opportunities they're bringing to those families, what results they're chasing and how we can help.
Mya Stark is the Director of LA Makerspace, an innovative STEM education nonprofit which expands opportunities for hands-on, project-based science and tech learning for low-income kids. Working on a train-the-trainers model, LAM is the Los Angeles Public Library’s primary partner for STEM education. Previously, Mya has worked with Paramount, Warner Bros and Disney Touchstone as a live-action screenwriter and director, edited a magazine and curated an art gallery. She began her social benefit sector career by founding the development department at nonprofit cinematheque The Cinefamily.
Sunday Assembly is free of charge, and donations are gratefully accepted.
Everyone is welcome. Free childcare provided.
Sunday Assembly is a volunteer-driven non-profit entirely funded by attendee donations. If you'd like to see SALA continue to develop positive secular community, please consider becoming a sustaining member: sundayassemblyla.org/monthly
We could always use more volunteer helpers, starting at 9am. to set up signs, greet attendees, brew coffee and load out after the event, let us know if you can be on the team this month!
Want to sing your heart out from the other side of the stage? The Wonder-more Warblers is a for-fun choir that meets at 10:30am on the day-of to run through the songs. Sometimes we even have a rehearsal with the band before the day! Sign up here to learn more.
There's a TON that goes into driving a thriving community--planning committees, event hosts, blog writers, social media posters, video editors and maybe something you're into that we haven't even thought of yet. If you'd like to be a part of the (figurative) magic of managing a science-based community, let us know!
