National Week of Making, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                American ingenuity has always powered our Nation and 
                fueled economic growth. Our country was built on the 
                belief that with hard work and passion, progress is 
                within our reach, and it is because of daring 
                innovators and entrepreneurs who have taken risks and 
                redefined what is possible that we have been able to 
                realize this promise. Makers and builders and doers--of 
                all ages and backgrounds--have pushed our country 
                forward, developing creative solutions to important 
                challenges and proving that ordinary Americans are 
                capable of achieving the extraordinary when they have 
                access to the resources they need. During National Week 
                of Making, we celebrate the tinkerers and dreamers 
                whose talent and drive have brought new ideas to life, 
                and we recommit to cultivating the next generation of 
                problem solvers.

                My Administration is committed to spurring 
                manufacturing, innovation, and entrepreneurship by 
                expanding opportunities for more Americans to build 
                products and bring them to market. Across the Federal 
                Government, we are working to increase access to 
                capital, maker spaces, and equipment to design, 
                develop, and prototype ideas. By investing in regional 
                manufacturing hubs, we are bringing together private 
                industry, leading universities, and public agencies to

                the skills they need for the next generation of 
                innovation. To continue to build a Nation of makers, we 
                are committed to engaging students at every level in

                pursue their own passions and excel in STEM fields.

                Last year, at the first-ever White House Maker Faire, I 
                called on leaders around our Nation to join in sparking 
                a grassroots renaissance in American making and

                products of tomorrow to markets today. As the maker 
                movement grows, I continue to call on all Americans to 
                help unlock the potential of our Nation and ensure 
                these opportunities reach all our young people,

                opportunity, and talent of our people--and empower all 
                of today's thinkers, makers, and dreamers.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the

                thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and thirty-ninth.
