The Maker Movement is a phenomenon that encourages people to learn new skills such as how to develop projects, how to become innovators, and ultimately how to become makers of change.
The Maker culture is a technology-based DYI approach to innovation - often using open-source hardware and software, utilizing the latest available technologies including 3D printers, CNC machines, and robotics. The Maker movement has harnessed the power of the internet to make information widely available and accessible which has ultimately resulted into a global hub of information.
“Making is fundamental to what it means to be human. We must make, create, and express ourselves to feel whole. There is something unique about making physical things. Things we make are like little pieces of us and seem to embody portions of our soul.”
The quote above are the words of Mark Hatch - author of The Maker Manifesto. Please take the time to read it at the link below.
