|Skill Exchange will bring its hands-on workshops to StoreFrontLab in September.|
We received 22 remarkable proposals for StoreFrontLab Experiments, and to make things easier, we awarded eight Micro Mission 888 Grant recipients (double the number we anticipated). The full line-up, which includes grantees and others, is fantastic, and getting to know everyone involved has only fueled our excitement. So mark your calendars and watch for more details as each event nears.
