My Granny’s Projects: Who are the experts in your community?

My grandmother taught me so many things because she had extra of the most precious resource any of us have: TIME.

You’re busy. Your colleagues are busy. The parents of students in your makerspace are busy. But there are “older” folks in your community with extra time, and a keen desire to pass along specialized knowledge they have.

Yes, there are most definitely knitters and crocheters in your community, but you can also reach out to local experts in:

  • woodworking
  • ham radio
  • photography
  • gardening
  • building models
  • cooking

Make those community connections and let your students learn to make something new! It’s an easy win for everyone involved.
