The maker movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing. It encourages a deep engagement with content, critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration while sparking curiosity. According to Thomas Kalil, deputy director of the White House's office of Science and Technology Policy, the Maker movement really "begins with the Makers themselves - who find making, tinkering, inventing, problem-solving, discovering and sharing intrinsically rewarding." Emphasis will be on designing your own MakerSpace. Participants (Makers) will explore and learn through engaging in hands on experiences and Q&A with leading experts.
