“Learning by doing.” Sure, it may be a tired cliche in education theories. But in reality, it can be more fun and engaging than, say, sitting in a classroom.

Hear how Makers are helping kids unlock their creativity while applying their STEM know-hows–and in so doing shape how we rethink the value and purpose of an education.
