When I was a computer programmer about 35% of programmers were women (in the 1980-1990's)..now 25% of programmers are women..and it wasn't a fun environment in the 1980's..but it's got to be better now, right?

Why Making Is Essential to Learning

Why Making Is Essential to Learning | Makerspaces | Scoop.it
Making is as old as learning itself. While the maker movement may only be about a decade old, the human desire to create dates back to the earliest forms of human activity, from making stone tools to drawing on cave walls (Halverson & Sheridan, 2014; Martinez & Stager, 2014). Thinkers such as Pestalozzi, Montessori, and Papert helped paved the way for the maker movement by stressing the importance of hands-on, student-centered, meaningful learning. Instead of viewing learning as the transmission of knowledge from teacher to student, these thinkers embraced the idea that children learn best when encouraged to discover, play, and experiment.

More recently, maker education is being used as a way to connect do-it-yourself informal learning to classrooms. Driven by new technologies such as 3D printing, robotics, and kid-friendly coding, making is emerging as an effective way to introduce students to STEM, particularly women and minorities. By incorporating elements of making into the classroom, educators can bridge the gap between what students are passionate about and what they're learning in school.

How To Solder: A Complete Beginners Guide - Makerspaces.com

How To Solder: A Complete Beginners Guide - Makerspaces.com | Makerspaces | Scoop.it
One of the most fundamental skills a maker should be able to master is the ability to solder electronics.  Whether you’re building a robot or working with Arduino, knowing how to solder will come in handy.  The best thing about soldering is that it’s really fun to learn and easy to master.

What Is Soldering?

If you were to take apart any electronic device that contains a circuit board, you’ll see the components are attached using soldering techniques.  Soldering is the process of joining two or more electronic parts together by melting solder around the connection.  Solder is a metal alloy and when it cools it creates a strong electrical bond between the parts.  Even though soldering can create a permanent connection, it can also be reversed using a desoldering tool as described below.

Maker Movement Grows in K-12, with Librarians Leading the Way, Finds SLJ Survey

Maker Movement Grows in K-12, with Librarians Leading the Way, Finds SLJ Survey | Makerspaces | Scoop.it

Old-fashioned board games and puzzles are what first drew students at a Jacksonville, NC, middle school into the library’s maker space. Now they’re experimenting with Snap Circuits and coding robots. At a rural school in Maryland, library participation has increased because of activities such as 3-D printing and Tinkercad design—especially among girls. 


Meanwhile, at an elementary school in Iowa City, IA, students work at a “tinkering table” in the library, taking apart old equipment and using scrap pieces to make new creations, such as jewelry and robots.

Makers Movement Changes the Educational Landscape

Makers Movement Changes the Educational Landscape | Makerspaces | Scoop.it
In Texas, a 13-year-old boy built a robot that could rescue victims of natural disasters. In Georgia, a 15-year-old girl developed a device that alerts parents who have have left their child in the car. And in California, a 13-year-old boy created a Braille printer that would be almost six times cheaper than the currently available model.

Young people aren't just the future. They're the present, innovating and creatively solving problems in a range of fields. Students across the country, from every background, have the ability to build new products that could change lives around the world.

That's what educators at the forefront of the "Maker movement" believe. Leaders of this initiative are changing the American educational landscape by engaging kids in discovery-based learning from a young age, encouraging them to learn not just by watching, but by doing – to not only consume, but also create.
