I’m really happy to see this excellent piece on how the maker movement is offering a new direction for science and technical education. Miles O’Brien does a great job.

  1. I agree it was a great segment. However, I was disappointed when the girls said they didn’t want to go into engineering. Techbridge, a group that promotes STEM education for girls, has studied this issue and found that role models are crucial.to making the connection between a fun, science based activity and a career in engineering.are there. plans to incorporate role models into the maker movement?

  2. Hey, they are kids.  There’s time for them to consider many options.   Don’t take what they say so literally.  They enjoyed themselves and learned spmething,too.  I’m not sure promoting STEM works for boys or girls.  Sent from my iPhone
