Summary

When was the last time you invented something? If you can’t remember, there’s a reason. The world as a whole hasn’t been focused enough on encouraging innovation especially in classrooms. We can’t fix this issue overnight, but we have the resources from Maker Labs, STEM toys and design workshops to start closing the gap. As world citizens, it’s our responsibility to spark change and make these resources widely accessible to students, educators, parents and more. Join Liam Nilsen and Danielle Applestone as they have a conversation moderated by Emily Pilloton on how to inspire our diverse world to be more creative and engaged in STEM education.
