Wonderful article has me thinking...what if?  What if the maker movement really permiated public education in such a way that students could pursue their passions?  What if we allowed time for this kind of learning beyond sumerrtime enrichment?  In my mind, this is what STEM should look like. We need to stop teaching in silos, rushing to "cover content" and start creating an environment where flow can happen. Allow time, provide resources & support - then watch the magic happen!  Thanks @pammoran for sharing some of your magic with us!
