Making has become a hot topic, not just in 4-H but in all of education. More 4-H programs are planning to host Maker Camps this summer than ever before. I am so thrilled to see youth across the country involved in the Maker Movement, however, my fear is that some of us are missing the point.
Anyone can follow instructions and make something, but that doesn’t mean they are learning. So, what makes ‘making’ meaningful?
