Makerspaces in Education and DARPA | Make

Makerspaces in Education and DARPA | Make | STEM News, Tools and Resources | Scoop.it

"The Makerspace program aims to build literacy in design, science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics, by combining what O’Reilly Media, MAKE magazine, and Otherlab have learned about the maker community.  We wish to do this with as much engagement as possible with the broader maker community to leverage the fantastic energy and talents of everyone doing beautiful things.

 

"Our emphasis will be threefold:

1) Self-directed learning (building your own project as a better motivator to engage in engineering).
2) Lower the cost of building and realizing dream projects through lower cost tools (software and hardware.)
3) Making making more social and engaging."

Jim Lerman's curator insight, July 28, 2013 9:50 AM

MAKE, the organization behind Maker Faire and a prime engine in the maker movement, has received a significant grant from DARPA. This alliance of educators with a major govenment defense agency has occasioned considerable discussion and debate. In this blog post, MAKE leader, Dale Dougherty, describes the organization's thought processes in submitting and accepting the grant. In doing so, he outlines the project's objectives and methods with great clairty. This offers those interested in the maker movement a compelling set of unified ideas to advance their work.

The 'Maker Movement' Inspires Shift in STEM Curriculum

The 'Maker Movement' Inspires Shift in STEM Curriculum | STEM News, Tools and Resources | Scoop.it

We live in a world of mass-produced products and modern technology -- technology that has made it easy for an individual to create and distribute customized and unique items sans manufacturers. And this ability has created the maker movement -- "an evolution of millions of people who are taking big risks to start their own small businesses dedicated to creating and selling self-made products," according to the Huffington Post.

And this movement is starting to make headway in some science, technology, engineering and math curriculum.
