Maker Faire Workshop
NYSCI Issues Report on Innovation, Education and the Maker Movement
In conjunction with the inaugural World Maker Faire, held in September 2010, NYSCI convened a two-day workshop with more than 80 leaders in education, science, technology and the arts to consider how the Maker movement can stimulate innovation in formal and informal education.
Participants considered three guiding questions:
- How can the creativity that is at the core of Making inform K–12 and career technical education?
- What collaborations between educators and Makers could inspire innovation in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) learning?
- Where do opportunities exist for facilitating connections between the Maker community and participants' areas of expertise and interest?
