When you complete a difficult project, whether in wood, electronics, or code, you take a step along the path of becoming a creator. The world does not need more consumers. Our future depends on training students to create solutions to tomorrow’s problems. My job is not to teach students about wood or electronics, but to give them experiences in manipulating them so that they can be come the creators our world needs.
