WE TOOK THE KIDS to LIT-Thurles for a Maker Meet and enjoyed the best hands-on evening ever. Both Mia (8) and Dylan (4) had more fun than they ever expected. The only downside is that both of these young student expect the same sort of inspiration from their primary schools.
Props to Mags Among, Mary Jo Bell, Chris Reina, Pam O'Brien, Julia Skinner and Hassan Dabbagh for bringing along so many things to inspire and motivate.
The big takeaway for our family was seeing young Dylan overcome his natural anxiety in large crowded spaces. Instead, he enjoyed tinkering with things, watching BB8, and running after his rocket every time it launched.
Every primary school should run a Maker Meet like the ones that precede every #ictedu event in Tipperary.
