This Ontario Makers and Mentors Innovation Conference is a student initiative supported by the University of Ottawa Faculty of Engineering and Centre Engineering Entrepreneurial Design. In collaboration with the Richard L’abbe uOttawa Makerspace and our sponsors we create a conference where makers, entrepreneurs, hobbyists and students can come out to compete in innovative design, meet companies from the industry and see the latest and greatest in project technology. While our mentors will be able to also enjoy everything listed above, there will be special workshops and speakers designed to educate teachers on the project resources, how they can be incorporated in project based learning and how teachers can form their own makerspaces.

The Makers:
The ones made for tinkering, experimenting, creating crazy things that move blink and buzz. Also known as the Inventor with 1000 ideas or the DIY guy/gal.

The Mentors:
The ones who give advice, provide guidance, educate, teach, and inspire. Also known as the advisor, teacher, or educator.
