4 stages of making:
1. Getting started: how begin, try, test, re-do
2. Experimenting: take failure, discuss, research, work it again 3. Prototyping: become comfortable to make/create with material constraints and how get it: donations, raise money. Grit, perserverence, increase confidence, work through ambiguity 4. Integrating Feedback: making is process, reflect and share what you’ve done/learned. Communication, deep understanding, openness to feedback, smtms critical, listen and think critically. How to Integrate Making into education
