A Maker is a person who invents new things. Makers create new products or methods, or hack old things. I teach making in low-income and underrepresented communities for one reason. We need everyone's participation and creativity to invent our future.We have huge problems that humanity needs to fix. We have a changing environment, limited resources, violence, hunger and poverty. We need lots of people to help solve these problems, we can not afford to waste any human potential. We can not afford to risk underutilizing the power and potential of a child because they were born poor, or wealthy, or a girl, or a boy, or a certain color, or a certain culture.
