Invent to Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom
The maker community brings children, hobbyists and professionals together in a glorious celebration of personal expression with a modern flare. When 3-d printing, laser cutting, robotics and computer programming become integral to the art studio, auto shop or physics lab, microcomputer control, every student needs access to tools, knowledge and problem solving skills.
Amazing new tools, materials and skills turn us all into makers. Using technology to make, repair or customize the things we need brings engineering, design and computer science to the masses. The finest scientists are often accomplished musicians. There are now multiple pathways to learning what we have always taught and things to do that were unimaginable just a few years ago.
Recycled materials can be brought back to life. While school traditionally separates art and science, theory and practice, such divisions are artificial. Craftsmen deal in aesthetics, tradition and mathematical precision. Video game developers rely on computer science. For the first time ever, childhood inventions may be printed, programmed or imbued with interactivity.
The real world just doesn't work that way! Architects are artists. Fortunately for educators, this maker movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing.
