+ The Maker Movement and STEM Education

"Margaret Honey and Eric Siegel feel that the Maker Movement has the potential to transform STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) learning.

 

...Makers delight in tinkering, hacking, creating and re-using materials and technology. They have organized themselves into thriving communities, we read, in which they create objects that they are passionate about." from source: http://dyslexia.wordpress.com/

ghbrett's curator insight, February 6, 2013 10:40 AM

The Maker Movement has created passion in students and others. Students involved with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) are not only making, but have discovered the delights of tinkering as they learn about topics in this area. This reviewer (not a teacher) believes that children and young adults have the most creative potential when they have been told "that's impossible."  Or just the opposite, if told "that's impossible," they go ahead and prove the nay sayers wrong. So start Tinkering and Making new things.
