Makerspaces & the Military

Pt 1034

Makerspaces & the Military.

As founder of MAKE Magazine and Maker Faire, Dale Dougherty’s priority is to get Americans making things. That means young people as well. So he applied for, and accepted, a grant from DARPA (the research arm of the US Department of Defense) to fund makerspaces in high schools. This funding has caused a stir in the hacker/maker movement. Nora speaks with Dale about why he thinks the partnership makes sense. She’ll also speak with Mitch Altman – considered by many in the North American hacker/maker community as a pioneer and a spokesperson for the movement – who is opposed to DARPA’s funding of school makerspaces.
