Work in progress - future maker


#1

I make lots of things, but the best thing I have been involved in crafting is my daughter. Well she has done most of the work. 14 years in the making and not finished yet.

She and I recently contributed to a piece about the Maker Movement, trying to get young people more interested in making things. As usual, she says it better than me.

Two nice videos from it. The first about her work.

The second with other kids making stuff, including 3D printing prosthetic hands

I can’t wait to see what she makes when the Glowforge arrives. I am sure it will feature in our courses.

Wonderful story – thanks for sharing it with us!

It reminds me of Gever Tully’s TED talk: 5 Dangerous things you should Let your kids do.

Wonderful :joy:
The idea of kids making their own prosthetic hands is both awe-inspiring and humbling.
