Philosophy – What we Believe at Young Makers Lab
We believe that kids are capable of doing and creating amazing, complex, difficult, and beautiful things.
We believe that much of the best learning and creating is social, and that the opportunity to create things as part of a group is critical for kids to experience.
We believe that the act of making things accelerates our learning process, and the learning that takes place while making things is multidisciplinary and much more powerful than learning through passive observation.
We believe that an important part of the making process is sharing. The final product should be shared, as should the process of making and what you learned through it. We want to help young makers do this in part through the construction of their own, positive, online presence.
