Adam Savage at The White House’s South by South Lawn Festival!

Working alongside 50 kids at a maker space in Baltimore, Adam helps build the official display sign for the first ever South by South Lawn. SXSL is a gathering of artists, entrepreneurs, thinkers, and makers at The White House’s south lawn to share ideas, art, and action. And at the event, Adam meets and chats with some of the scientists, educators, and makers who are all working to make a positive impact in our shared future.

  1. Truly inspirational!

    Please tell me that, “Fellow Maker, you are awesome!”, will find its way onto a shirt, pin, sticker, challenge coin! Encouraging words to be spoken whenever makers meet. Let’s hope they’re spoken often.

  2. Loved it!

    Also the editing and production was really beautiful, congrats to whoever at Tested did that. 🙂

  3. A wonderful video about a wonderful topic. Thank you Adam for working with Digital Harbor out of Baltimore, MD. It’s great to see this. As a founder and board member of Cyberia Maker Space in Indianapolis, IN… This inspires and propels me to do more and to make cool things happen! Thank you for all you do Adam and the Tested team!

  4. Being a Brit who has spent a lot of time in the US I have some issues with the place but I must say when you guys get behind something like this it’s very inspiring. In the UK it seems so hard to build up a level of enthusiasm and get behind events and causes like this. Percentage per person I think you guys are just more passionate about the things you endorse, that I admire. Great video, great event.

  5. And this is why I support TESTED. Sorry I can’t make the show this year. Got my new album to release! My own maker life is going strong…Cheers to all at TESTED

  6. I hope so, I’m reluctant to get a shirt that says “Tested” because it might send a weird message to those that don’t visit the site…
