HIgh School Fab Labs re-envision Shop Class

HIgh School Fab Labs re-envision Shop Class | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

This revamping of shop class has lots of implications for education. For one thing, it brings the act of making back into the academic curriculum. Hands-on workshops and traditional shop classes have been disappearing from high schools. They were often marginalized and given the bad rap of being something you did if you weren’t good at sitting still in class. This meant that kids relegated to shop classes were often treated as though their efforts could only lead toward vocational training, meaning that their employment choices were limited to industrial or manual work. At the same time kids who would have benefitted from tinkering and hand-on making were given the message that shop class was somewhow beneath them, losing out on important spacial explorations that could help them gain confidence to work with their hands. (I myself landed in engineering school as a 17-year old who had never been in a shop class.)
