‘Making’ with Schuyler St Leger
Thursday, May 19, 2016 11:00:00 AM AEST – 1:00:00 PM AEST
A 14-year-old with a passion for taking things apart and rebuilding them
will present his own seminar during Education Week.
Schuyler St Leger from Arizona, USA has become an international advocate
for the art of making thanks to his innate curiosity in everything
technology, from electronics to software and robotics.
‘My love for making started when I learned to knit,’ Schuyler said.
‘It just took off from there. I loved the idea of being able to build
something from nothing.’
It didn’t take long before Schuyler had completely immersed himself in a
world of technology and creating. At the age of just 11 years old, Schuyler
was delivering presentations on how 3D-printing worked and even
presenting its potential to students of all ages across the United States. As Education Week kicks off this week in Australia, Schuyler has partnered with tech giant Intel, and will deliver a virtual presentation to Victorian
students across the state called, ‘Making’ with Schuyler St Leger. Alongside similarly talented young Victorians makers, Schuyler’s presentation will look at he got his start in the field, what he likes to make and how other kids can get involved.
‘Don’t be afraid to take things apart, break them and learn how they work,’
Schuyler said. ‘That’s what fascinated me with making and technology, being able to see
how something works and to put it back together and even improve on it.’
Education Week will run until 21 May and is a great opportunity for staff and students to learn new skills and to investigate the immense world of educational opportunities available as part of the STEM curriculum.
Schuyler’s presentation will run this coming Thursday, 19 May at 11.00am using Adobe Connect. Interested staff and students are encouraged to register for the webinar, see: ‘Making’ with Schuyler St Leger
