I have three confessions to make: 1) I don’t know how to change a car tire, 2) it’s a miracle I know how to check for malware on my computer, and 3) I was exceptionally lucky to pass physics in high school (thanks, Mr. Teachworth, you really are a credit to your name). I see tinkerers and think, “It would probably explode if I tried that.”
So here I am, learning about Maker Faire and the “Maker Movement” that inspired it. Maker Faire is tricky enough to describe. Making robots? Cars? Soldering circuit boards? Making sparkly things? Who on earth am I to try and participate in all that or to try and articulate what the “Maker Movement” is?
But here’s the big secret I’m about to let you in on: we’re all makers.
We just haven’t realized it yet.
