Student promotes DIY with super-awesome videos - ISTE

Student promotes DIY with super-awesome videos - ISTE | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"From a cardboard periscope to robots programmed to paint, seventh grader Sylvia Todd likes to make things. And she wants to inspire other kids — particularly girls who sometimes shy away from STEM careers — to get passionate about science, technology, engineering and math.


"Some girls in my class think [STEM] is only for boys or only for adults," Sylvia said. "They say, 'I can't do that. I have to do something else or other types of occupations.' But you can do what you want to do. You can be what you want to be. I really like inspiring other people to do what they want to do and what they want to have fun with.

 

Her vehicle for spreading that inspiration is her website, Sylvia's Super-Awesome Maker Show . http://sylviashow.com/ This is where you can find videos of Sylvia demonstrating how to make everything from crafty decoupage pieces to advanced science projects from pre-made kits."

More evidence that STEMx, especially computational thinking, can make a difference for underserved students in urban and rural areas. Students can work remotely and stay part of their communities. 

Jacqueline Taylor-Adams's curator insight, June 13, 2013 9:38 PM

The Urban Tech Fair is here to report such truths, so we may rethink the capacity and character of the "underserved and marginalized."
