Stories From Maker Parents

AnnMarie Thomas of the Maker Education Initiative posted up a transcript of Q&A sessions with parents of maker children.  This is a good read for those who have young children and would like to get them into making.

A popular session in the Education Cafe at this year’s World Maker Faire was the Q&A with a panel of maker parents. Recently, we followed up with the four parent panelists to hear stories of how their children got into making, and their recommendations for resources for maker families!

This is only part 1 of 3. I look forward to reading what the rest of the parents have to say.

  1. Thanks Tyler! Please post a link to the rest when it gets posted. As a parent of three, I’m looking for any and all resources to get my kids interested in making.
