Innovation, education and Makers…

Dale writes

On the Monday following Maker Faire New York, the National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored a workshop titled “Innovation, Education and the Maker Movement.” It was organized by Margaret Honey of the New York Hall of Science, Thomas Kalil of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and myself. I asked Tom if we could publish his talk, which opened the workshop.

Full talk posted here.

  1. If the Obama administration were really interested in the Maker movement and encouraging science education, they’d start open-sourcing government contracts for software, hardware, and research. The public pays for this technology, why can’t we read the source code and see the schematics?
