Since Making Makers: Kids, Tools, and the Future of Innovation was published this fall, I've had lots of fun giving talks and interviews about it. I've also been delighted to learn of classes, teachers/parents groups, and book clubs that have been reading it or considering using it in the coming months. However, I've also been trying to cut back my travel. Thanks to the magic of Google hangouts and Skype, though, I am happy to make"virtual" visits to your book, teaching, or parenting group to discuss the book. There are so many great stories to share that didn't make it into the book!
The discussion can include topics such as popular projects for young makers, encouraging maker mindset in kids and adults, making in the classroom, or an in-depth look at any of the maker traits discussed in the book.
If your teacher, parent, or book group would be interested in having me Skype/Google Hangout into one of your meetings for a discussion of "Making Makers" please contact me! There is no charge for such visits, though I do ask that your group buy at least ten copies of the book (from the vendor of your choice.) I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
