In formal education, we measure student achievement through standardized tests, but the maker movement goes far beyond this. The focus on student-created projects encourages creativity and a sense of identity as creators, tinkerers, designers, and inventors. Students get access to sophisticated tools and materials for creating and thinking critically. In fact, making projects can help students develop real-world skills. It is the most effective way to help students learn about technology, science, and other fields, which are increasingly oriented towards the maker movement.
