Adam Savage’s Maker Tour: Elizabeth Forward High School

In Elizabeth, PA, Adam visits an all-girl maker class, sees some of the students’ projects and learns about Elizabeth Forward High School’s philosophy of emphasizing engagement over ability. He also receives an awesome gift for his shop! (This series and tour is made possible by The Fab Foundation and Chevron.)

  1. I think this is the most beautiful way of teaching a subject and the principal seems like a really genuine and enthusiastic person about experience over exam results which is happening less and less.

    Great video, great people and Adam always melts my heart 😛

  2. I would really like to see an accompanying post by Adam for each of these makerspace tours. Maybe 3 things he thinks the makerspace is doing exceptionally well.

  3. Wonderful to see you at the Brain Candy Show. These Maker Spaces vids are so cool! I really wanted to talk to you about Nation of Makers during the Meet and Greet. Maybe next time 🙂

  4. Absolutely thrilling to see women featured so prominently in these videos. As a Dad of two girls I fully hope they do cool stuff like this in the future.

  5. I’m quite jealous of the classes that are available now. I had 4 years of wood shop but having these different machines would have made high school more fun and exciting.

  6. What I ABSOLUTELY LOVED about this video was the engagement of so many young women in the program. Well done EFHS!!!
