    learn alongside adults, where maker parents can bring their children,adults and where members can creatework on their own
    Our volunteers, mentors and instructors hail from different backgrounds and skill sets, including: Software Engineers, Hardware Engineers, Artists, Scientists, Teachers, Filmmakers, Roboticists, Rocket Scientists, Librarians, Executives, Entrepreneurs, Moms, and Dads dedicated to the proposition that making things is essential to creating an awesome society. This diversity of talents and interests is currently reflected in our Board of Directors.
    This space is an experiment to bridge the gap between academia and the community-at-large, establish a peer-to-peer mentorship network, and give members the chance to apprentice into a whole variety of fields ranging from industrial design to data analysis. Success then will be determined by the number of our members, especially of school age, who we can help connect to outside research and apprenticeship programs in addition to the size and scope of the peer network we can build between our members.

    MAKERSPACES

    Makerspaces (aka Hackerspaces) provide shared physical resources otherwise unaffordable or attainable by an individual or family. They provide a fluid workspace as well as the collaboration, inspiration and encouragement of others. We want to appeal to youth, families, school groups, stay-at-home-parents, home-schooled kids and individuals that are comfortable working around and with kids.
    The maker movement, as it pertains to education, seeks to build the confidence, analytic skills, and creativity of those involved by establishing an environment centered on the creative act. This collaborative and project-based approach to learning runs counter to the current trend in education of defining academic success in terms of standardized tests, especially at the cost of hands-on programs such as shop, art, and laboratory science. By establishing a permanent physical location for Los Angeles Young Makers students, and their families, will have a place to learn about engineering, design, and research through both organized classes as well as open-ended projects.
    Physically, a successful community makerspace will exist as a large space placed conveniently within reach of public transportation so as to provide ready access to a variety of neighborhoods independent of their socioeconomic status. As a community it will be able to provide a network for people to collaborate and teach one another on a whole host of projects. As an educational endeavor it will provide both a meeting point between the community and established research group outreach efforts, as well as a lab space for community members to develop their own citizen science projects.
    This space will be an experiment to bridge the gap between academia and the community-at-large, establish a peer-to-peer mentorship network, and give members the chance to apprentice into a whole variety of fields ranging from industrial design to data analysis. Success then will be determined by the number of our members, especially of school age, who we can help connect to outside research and apprenticeship programs in addition to the size and scope of the peer network we can build between our members.

    The teenage urge to tinker is often driven by "the desire to circumvent a rule-setting, safety-conscious mother," reports Molly Baker in the Wall Street Journal (5/23/12). When Robert Scalzo's mother "flatly refused to get him an airsoft gun for his birthday or Christmas, he built himself a slingshot instead," using a Swiss Army knife to trim a V-shaped branch, attaching two rubber bands and adding a pouch made of hockey tape." Jim Danielson's mom told him "he couldn't have a TV set in his bedroom" so he asked his parents if he could have one if he built it himself.
    "They probably didn't think I could do it, so they said yes," says Jim, who went ahead and "built a projector system for his room during his high school sophomore year, and he and his friends used it to play Nintendo 64 Games." As it turns out, the experience paid off in a big way -- Jim recently was awarded a "Thiel Fellowship -- an unusual program started by Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal -- which pays young innovators $100,000 to stay out of college and spend two years tinkering instead."
    Patrick Corelli, meanwhile, built himself an air cannon "after his mother banned videogames when he was in sixth grade." This fall he'll enter the University of Pittsburgh,"with an engineering scholarship." Such connections between childhood tinkering and academic development is spurring renewed interest in "unstructured, hands-on creativity" among kids and parents alike. As a result, sales of "building and construction" toys "jumped 23 percent, to $1.6 billion in 2011," according to NPD Group. "This idea of making something is very fundamental to human beings, and children really get that," says Dale Dougherty, founder of MAKE Magazine. "We are not just consumers," he says. "We are makers of things." ~ Tim Manners, editor.
