Hey Makers! It`s about time we gave you an update on the Clear Creek Makerspace. Please give a warm welcome to our new teammate, Tyler Kerr!
Tyler Kerr is the new program manager for the Clear Creek Makerspace! From an early age, Tyler was an avid maker, scientist, tinkerer and, much to his parents` chagrin, a keen disassembler of treasured family electronics. He studied paleontology in both college and graduate school, with a particular focus on fossil whales -- officially making him a `whaleontologist.` Before joining the Localworks team, Tyler worked as a STEAM educator and ultimately as director of Wyoming`s Innovation Wyrkshop makerspace network, one of the largest academic makerspace networks in the Mountain West. His interests include 3D printing, digitization, and developing creative, gamified, out-of-the-box nerdy ways to engage communities and teach complex topics in meaningful ways. When he`s not in the makerspace, you can find Tyler and his partner Kate camping, hiking, and generally trying (and failing) to stop their three dogs from eating and rolling in weird stuff they find in the forest.
Welcome to CCM, Tyler!
