  • 3. Who are makers? • Those who make things • Not just production or fabrication, but also apply critical thinking and problem solving skills • Explore materials, tools, processes • Learn, create, share • Do-it-yourself (DIY) with others • Not just local communities in old days, but through Internet to collaborate with people around the world • We are all makers
  • 4. Who are makers? • Some create enabling technologies • Some use technologies creatively • Some do both • They are • Kids • Hobbyists • Entrepreneurs • Inventors • Educators • Artists • ….

  • 8. Why “Making”? • Re-connect us to the material world • Skilled manual labor entails a systematic encounter with the material world, precisely the kind of encounter that gives rise to natural science. • This history provides a nice illustration of a point made by Aristotle: • Lack of experience diminishes our power of taking a comprehensive view of the admitted facts. Hence those who dwell in intimate association with nature and its phenomena are more able to lay down principles such as to admit of a wide and coherent development; while those whom devotion to abstract discussions has rendered unobservant of facts are too ready to dogmatize on the basis of a few observations. Crawford, M. (2006). Shop Class as Soulcraft. The New Atlantis. Retrieved from http://www.thenewatlantis.com/publications/shop-class-as-soulcraft
  • 9. Why “Making”? • Sustainability • Consume less, produce more • Locally produce, locally consume • Self-sustainable community and city • Maintain local and global views • Empowerment • What can be imagined, can be made • Dare to think big • Dare to explore unknown • “Can we do space exploration in HK?” “Can we build planes in HK?”
  • 10. Attributes developed through Making • Tinkering, hacking • Learning • Exploring • Experimenting • Hands-on approach in learning by doing • Cross-disciplinarity • Learn through peer and community • Collaboration • Skills, craftsmanship, patience • Sharing to community
  • 11. Why PolyU Design? • “Everyone designs who devises courses of action aimed at changing existing situations into preferred ones.” • “… design … makes ideas tangible, it [design] takes abstract thoughts and inspirations and makes something concrete.” • Designers think through making • Making is not just about production or fabrication, but also involve creativity, critical thinking, self-learning, exploration and experimentation and more, which helps to develop life-long learning skills (Herbert Simon, 1981, as cited by John Hesket, 2009) (Mat Hunter, 2014)
