The Maker Movement

There is a lot of buzz around the maker movement these days. In particular, there are a growing number of programs for kids that focus on this movement. Being a maker is great, and I insist on having our toolbox in our main living space with lots of scrap wood around to make sure we can quickly fix/build things as needed.

But, that’s not what the maker movement is about. Rather it seems to be about using laser cutters and 3D printers. Yes, these are fun tools to play with and have their place. But most of the time, you just need a glue gun or a some wooden planks and screws to solve real problems.
