Recognizing that the Maker movement embodies aspects of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning that are the hallmarks of effective education — deep engagement with content, critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, learning to learn, and more — NYSCI, in collaboration with Dale Dougherty and Tom Kalil, approached the National Science Foundation to sponsor a two-day workshop. Over 80 leaders in education, science, technology and the arts came together at NYSCI to consider how the Maker movement can help stimulate innovation in formal and informal education. Participants included leaders from foundations, federal agencies, respected educators and developers from schools of engineering, architecture, computer science, and multimedia design, entrepreneurs whose life work has focused on “Making” in different sectors, innovators in the fields of formal and informal science education, research scientists in teaching and learning, and directors of leading science centers, museums and arts institutions.
