The California fires have brought up many conversations in the MakerSpace. Students have discussed how we can help, why it’s happening, who’s doing something about it, and when will it will stop? A lot of the questions being asked we don’t have answers for.
One thing I have noticed about my students is their constant desire to help others and to help their future. These conversations connected to our class work where we are currently making “wearable” items/objects where thoughts of sustainability and our environment are at the forefront of truly making their future the cause of today.
