What if you mix Makers, Entrepreneurs & Creativity

What do you get if you mix Makers, Entrepreneurs, Creativity & Student-voice?

Hear how I combined elements from the Maker Movement, Student Entrepreneurship, incredible amounts of Creativity and plenty of student voice to lead my students through the most ambitious project of my teaching career.

Hear how my students led each other through an amazing project full of making, entrepreneurship and creativity. How one students idea to use LEGO, led to creating a movie and raising money to host a screening of the event at the local cinema.

Did this fit within the curriculum? Yes. Was that the basis of the project design? No, because just like LEGO you can't always follow the instructions!
