  • So what’s all the buzz about “Making”? Making is creative, innovative, inventive, collaborative, resourceful and empowering. as the popularity of Making increases, so does the interest in introducing youth to the magic of Making. People are taking note and the benefits of Maker programs for youth are being acknowledged by community organizations, educators, parents, and most importantly, the youth who are already actively involved. Heavy on the STEMHands-on is key. offer children the opportunity to build, make and create. Children make something (design process) versus doing experiments (scientific process). Programs can follow a set of planned activities, but should encourage trial and error and allow for individual creativity and experimentation. Children own their creations. When a project is completed, kids should be able to take their project home. Programs should be long enough in duration that children can immerse themselves and result in a meaningful experience. Make sharing of ideas, projects, skills and knowledge an integral part of the program. an in-school program, offered in 40-minute blocks once a week.
  • Students explore the materials and the skills related to a topic of interest. Provided with ‘stuff to play with’, encourage them to tinker. Students come up with the QUESTIONS for the next phase.
  • The difference with Trad. Flipped Classrooms are the content is offered AFTER tinkering – they know what they want to know more about.
  • Students synthesize and make meaning from their experiences and concept learning. They reflect on the learning through creation.
  • Students present their work through instructional videos to teach others, a performance or live demonstration to an audience.
