Free Screening of Maker: A Documentary on the Maker Movement

The Harvard Educational Review and Springboard: The Harvard College Design Club invite you to join us for a film screening on Wednesday, November 12th at 5:00PM of Maker: A Documentary on the Maker Movement.

Maker is a documentary examining the current American "maker movement," fueled by passion, design, and DIY principles. The film will include discussion where experts from the field will engage in a lively conversation about the possibilities and challenges that the maker movement holds for 21st century learning and design.

The 'Maker Movement', sometimes called the 'Third Industrial Revolution,' subverts traditional manufacturing by building on innovative concepts such as open source, local manufacturing, crowd funding, and digital fabrication. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, 'Maker' delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The film explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the Maker Movement – and returns with a timely snapshot of one of the transforming influences of the current age.

The screening will conclude with a panel discussion which will include Harvard’s Dr. Edward Clapp from Project Zero and the University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Dr. Erica Halverson, both authors from HER's upcoming symposium exploring the maker movement.
