EduTECH Day One: Super Awesome Sylvia - The Power of Making
Check out her website: http://sylviashow.com/
It would be great to see this happening in class rather than just at home. A great argument for all classes to not only be maker spaces publishing suites.
I also like this website she mentioned: https://diy.org/ where kids can teach other kids. Encouraging them to not only make but to also share, learn and teach!
Sylvia also demoed her WaterColourBot http://watercolorbot.com/ demonstrating an awesome intersect of art, Maths, robotics and computing. Man I hope HPSS produces legions of young people like Sylvia!!
I also loved that she was brave enough to do live demos, rolling with the hiccups and being an awesome example of why she should take risks and embrace failures as part of the learning process!
Make sure you buy her book: http://superawesomebook.com/
