Learning by making

This past week I’ve been visiting Science Leadership Academy Middle School nearby UPenn. I took part in pre-engineering class, which has very hands-on curriculum and most time is spend in maker space. In just 30 minutes I’ve created this ‘string piece’ and it just opened a stream of ideas how many other activities I could do there applying math, physics, design and other skills. Learning by doing and constructionism is just such a great pedagogy!
