Teach kids to make things - New Pittsburgh Courier

Teach kids to make things - New Pittsburgh Courier | Tinkering and Innovating in Education | Scoop.it

When 60,000 tinkerers arrive at the New York Hall of Science this weekend for World Maker Faire New York, kids will see original action figures designed on a 3-D printer, homemade race cars, robots and a sewing machine turned into a music box.

 

Teachers will see a chance to reimagine U.S. science education.

 

Parents should see a chance to replace the usual after-school and summer routines with activities that captivate kids in positive ways.

 

I see a way to get kids to choose tinkering over TV.  Based on 16 years of hearing pitches about the next great thing in education, what jumps out is that demand from young people -- not the education industry's desire to supply something -- is driving the maker movement.

ghbrett's insight:

This is a stylus/pen combination that is a tinkering tool in more ways than producing images. I think I am going to break down and order one for my self.

New York Times (blog) : Is Maker Faire Made for Kids?

 

... 

As the event has grown, both in terms of attendance and corporate sponsorship, it has become a magnet for families looking for hands-on learning that could augment science, engineering and math education, while helping to develop the next generation of what has been called, the “maker movement,” a renaissance in building, making and fixing things yourself.

 

“I love that it is becoming more kid-centric,” said Stephen Gilman, who brought his son Ben, 7, to the event, and works to help create “makerspaces,” or  hands-on learning workshops, for children.

 

“This is where the power of the maker movement is,” he said.

 

Amber Garcia is only 2 1/2, but her mother, Christine Rosario, brought her and her older sister to the Learn How to Solder tent at the fair.

 

“If they think they can do it here,” her mother said, “they can do it in the future.”

ghbrett's insight:

In a safe controlled space that provides age appropriate access to tools and supplies, Maker Faire is an exciting opportunity for everyone. Even older folks who NEVER used tools or tinkered in the past.
