The Maker Movement Is About More Than Science and Math — But Is All This Tinkering Really Effective?

The Maker Movement Is About More Than Science and Math — But Is All This Tinkering Really Effective? | makers - תנועת המייקרים | Scoop.it
This is one article in a series that examines gifted education, classroom creativity and geniuses in society. (See our full genius archive) The 74 is a proud media partner of the 92nd Street Y's "7 Days of Genius," a global series of events orchestrated to explore "the power of genius to make a positive impact on the world" running March 5-12. See events: 92y.org/Genius.

In the last few years, the “maker movement” has become a marvel in American schools through Maker Faires featuring homemade robots to after-school programs that teach kids to code — to entire schools geared around the art of tinkering.
