Practical Advice for Bringing Making to School

Presenter

Parents of makers know that when their children are programming, building robots, and inventing, they are learning. Yet at school, learning becomes serious and sometimes boring. Why can't learning at school be like the vibrant, joyful learning we see at Maker Faire, and in homes of makers all around the world?nnIn the spirit of Maker Faire and global making, we will share practical advice for parents of makers, educators, and makers themselves who want to re-make schools into places where children love to learn once again
In true Maker fashion, everyone has a part to play in this revolution!
