Through making, we learn invaluable life lessons. We engage in persistent, complex problem-solving. We create solutions to real-world problems, we imagine alternative ways of thinking about our life with technology, and we discover a world of connections.
Education Makers study what people learn and how they develop 21st century skills and competencies in maker-led activities. We work on developing an inclusive, interdisciplinary and intergenerational workshop model with multi-level and complex challenges where collaboration takes its full meaning because working alone is not possible. Here are some examples of projects we are conducting:
