BY CHRISTINA HUG
@ VOL 28 ON JAN 21, 2014

Afer living in San Fransisco for three years, Christina Hug returned to Toronto and founded The Makers Nation, an organization to coalescing the art, tech, design, and maker communities in cities around the world to meet, collaborate, learn and make things. 

It took her by surprise when only kids showed up at "Battle Bot Royal", the first event she put together for adults to use machinaries to make moterized robots 

Since that expereince, she has a new mission - to encourage adults to play more.  She wants to offer the perspective that how work and play can complement each other.
