Young Makers

Guess what? Kids are making all over the country. A lot of them are in Young Makers clubs, showing off what they make at Maker Faire and generally having a great time making together! The Young Makers Blog will keep you updated on happenings around the country – February’s blog has a photo of  President Obama admiring a kid’s marshmallow cannon. Can you believe it?

Watch this to get inspired by young makers … AND a homemade hovercraft! (You can learn how to make your own hovercraft with our MAKESHOP Show original video Leaf Blower Hovercraft.)

Stay calm and make on – and remember, you’re part of a movement!
