Cesar Harada, Founder of MakerSpace, was invited to speak at the Innovation in STEM Education Conference in Qatar in April 2018. His keynote was about the Future of Education. He also conducted workshop on robotics for the participants. It was a fruitful experience for both the audiences of the conference, as well as Cesar.
In his talk, Cesar delved into the existential challenges we face, the new perspectives we can consider and the choices we can make. He points out that there is a better way for integrate education into daily life and that students can be more than passive learners–they can become active creators.
The moment when the prototype was “good to go” … or so they thought!
