All educators- from classroom teachers to administrators at all levels- will benefit from Let Me Try It. It is a great introduction to the why of making and creating and will leave you not only wanting more but anxious to get your students started creating ASAP.
We hear a lot about making and fabricating these days in education, but in Let Me Try It, educators who've successfully implemented digital fabrication at the classroom, school and district levels provide a clear rationale and steps to get started. Creating isn't the newest fad in education- it's the next revolution with our students at the center.
