Maker spaces are a hot topic in education forums right now. It’s clear that our culture is craving outlets for creativity, and these are one way to address that. If you want to learn about making from A to Z, you might want to consider backing this Kickstarter project from Melody Quintana & Sneha Pai, Maker’s Alphabet. There are only 2 days left on their campaign (April 23, 2014 is the last day) and they have already raised double their goal of $4,500. For a $30 pledge, you will get the hardcover book, an e-book (with links to resources for each letter), and the opportunity to vote on the letter “X”.
