L.A. Makerspace transforming technology education at Los Angeles Public Library

- With so many schools losing funding for extra-curricular actives and the arts being defunded, the “Maker Movement” is poised to bring the education so many under served communities may be sorely lacking.

What is the “Maker Movement?” It started with parents as a way to teach children about simply creating, doing DIY projects which cover everything from making furniture out of wood pallets, to learning how to create computer code using popular games like Minecraft.

According to L.A. Makerspace, “Maker-style education is dedicated to the idea that we learn best by creative doing. In the process, we learn how to learn. “ Find out more about L.A. Makerspace in the video above, or go to their website at http://www.lamakerspace.org
