Submission + - Darpa + Makers + School = The future of innovation->

PerlJedi writes: "The future of innovation in America is the Maker movement. A new project being announced on the Makezine blog aims to bring the low cost innovation and alternative manufacturing processes to schools in hopes of turbo charging the next generation of inventors in the US.

The new Makerspace program, developed by Dale Dougherty of MAKE and Dr. Saul Griffith of Otherlab, will integrate online tools for design and collaboration with low-cost options for physical workspaces where students may access educational support to gain practical hands-on experience with new technologies and innovative processes to design and build projects. The program has a goal of reaching 1000 high schools over four years, starting with a pilot program of 10 high schools in California during the 2012-2013 school year.
