This book was recommended to me when I was at the iPad summit at the American Embassy School in Delhi India. It’s a great book that will get you motivated to introduce Maker concepts like tinkering and engineering into your classroom (or maybe into your own life). A great book for STEM teachers, Art teachers or any teacher that wants to integrate great problem solving activities into their classroom or organize a maker day at their school!
I love Zero to Maker because it introduced me to one man’s amazing initial journey into the Maker world. He joins a team building an Underwater ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) searching for lost treasure. He also profiles many other makers/entrepreneurs who are using their tinkering, building and engineering skills to make a living for themselves. Take a look at Cut Brooklyn, where owner and founder Joel Bukiewicz designs and crafts kitchen cutlery. He is just one example of the many makers out there earning a living with the amazing skills that we need to encourage and harness in our students.
