Making Makers
Making as a Pathway to Engineering
Albemarle County Public Schools
Chad S. Ratliff
The challenge is to reach all learners
to empower them
and to engage them
by adding context to content
across the curriculum
and by adding content to context
through making with divergent solutions
to create makers, not just consumers
who may become job creators, not just seekers
making is a pathway to engineering…and
engineering skills enable young makers
to apply content and skills in creative ways
which lies at the heart of innovation.
