The Compassionate Maker
About this Guide
This guide will show you how to support children and young adults as they explore societal themes, such as compassion, empathy, and social action through the creation of authentic content and products. No need for a high tech makerspace in your school or public library, all you need are inexpensive supplies and children/teens who wish to take action in their community through engaged self-expression.
