WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Engineering professors report that students now enter college without the kind of hands-on expertise they once unfailingly possessed. At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “we scour the country looking for young builders and inventors,” says Kim Vandiver, dean for undergraduate research. “They’re getting harder and harder to find.” MIT now offers classes and extracurricular activities devoted to taking things apart and putting them together, an effort to teach students the skills previous generations learned curbside on weekend afternoons.

Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari, said in a phone interview with Wired.com: “The more we can turn the nation into a nation of makers, they will be smarter, they’ll be better problem-solvers, and they’ll be more equipped for the problems of tomorrow.”

Nashville is full of makers. How can you support them and the next generation of makers?
