Why mere talk is NOT enough


As you can see I have inserted a photo of girls engaged in technology at the top of this email. Why have I done this? It’s because I want to tell you about a fantastic lady who didn’t get opportunities like this in middle school and high school. Fortunately, she found her love of technology in college, but Julia was fortunate to have one great teacher in college that saw her skill and passion even before she did. If you’re tired of girls getting marginalized in technology and you’re ready to get more girls involved, THEN LET’S GET STARTED! We’re not looking for an army of followers – we just need a small handful of heroes who are sick of the status quo in education and are ready to take action. 95% of people will give up before they start, but if you’re one of those special people–one of the top 5% who are ready to make the commitment and willing put forth the effort to make things happen–then click over to today’s podcast and learn how to start change in your community.


Let’s start some meaningful changes,

Muahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!! Ok, now that I have that out... I can get to work. For as long as I can remember, I have been making things. This habit used to be called "Inventing" but has lately been repurposed by the Maker community with the term "Maker". While there are some subtle differences between Inventing and Making, I have discovered my passion for both by inspiring a new generation of Makers. In this quest to spark creative thinking and problem solving through practical and exciting projects, I draw on my background in biomedical research, high energy fiber laser development, and 15 years of building laboratory devices. As an experimental physicist with a PhD from Case Western Reserve University, I have seen research and development from many angles and am now bringing that experience to middle school and high school students who want to make everything from catapults to cybernetic augmentations. Through the medium of Making and Inventing, students are transformed from passive observers of education to active learners. This powerful shift fosters deep insights, creative expression, collaborative thinking and a host of other skills that are difficult to learn in traditional settings. Along with my wife Debby, an accomplished constructivist educator, I am on a quest to transform education and am looking for like-minded collaborators to bring hands-on learning to future generations.
