What Is The Maker Movement?
The maker movement is a contemporary do-it-yourself (DIY) culture, only with newer technology.
“Makers tap into an admiration for self-reliance and combine that with open-source learning, contemporary design and powerful personal technology like 3-D printers. The creations, born in cluttered local workshops and bedroom offices, stir the imaginations of consumers numbed by generic, mass-produced merchandise.”
In a world that is increasingly global, increasingly technological, and increasingly complex we need ‘making’ to prepare our children for their future. We must encourage thinkers, innovators and lifelong creative learners to ensure their future success and happiness.
