Maker Ed: How Students Will Change the World Today

With maker tech, our students are learning that changing the world doesn’t have to wait until they work in a lab or run a foundation in some distant future. Students today can obtain and analyze massive amounts of data to discover creative ways to help their communities, from studying migration patterns or asteroid images to monitoring beehives or aquaponic gardens. We will discuss five real-world student projects, their impact on the world, and how you can incorporate them into your classroom.
