Vision Statement

What's our vision statement? Edit this draft!

  1. Engage kids in critical thinking and critical awareness of their world
  2. Be an inclusive organization, connecting strategically to other scout organizations, and involving community members of diverse backgrounds
  3. Serve families and young kids not covered by the adult or teen hacker/maker movements
  4. Focus on STEAM, double check that all the activities include all five elements
  5. Focus on values, double check that all activities emphasize or illustrate one or more core values
  6. Emphasize the logging/recording of making things to share techniques and skills with others, makers creating curriculum for other makers in a decentralized way (no bottlenecks in the process)
  7. Make curriculum open source, license material creative commons, and format with consideration toward translation into other languages whenever feasible (no text embedded in images, for example) for broadest reach and usefulness
  8. Build a strong National/International support system for makers to help each other out, including getting new Maker Scout groups up and running successfully
  9. Build feedback and measurement into activities so the organization can learn, self-correct, and grow constantly and predictably

Knowledge

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
