In this video, Sasha said, “I felt like I wasn’t the making type. I felt as if I was incapable of building something…” 

  • If you had students who felt this way, what might you do to affect their perception of themselves?
  • What are ways that educators support youth in becoming makers, problem solvers, creators, tinkerers, innovators, etc.?

Sasha’s curiosity led her to investigate and address a real-world issue.

  • How might you inspire youth to see and address problems in which they are interested?
  • How might you encourage students to think critically about these issues and to work towards solutions through making?
