Why Make Room for Maker-spaces?

Why start a Micro-school that focuses entirely on the interdisciplinary maker-space? After 20 years of teaching I have seen how more often than not the young people of today come to life in a maker-space. The video below brings a huge smile to my face because I have known students exactly like this child and seen them go from nearly invisible quiet seemingly uninterested to leading the class!

Can you imagine what your child can create if they had started as young as this little maker?
