The philosophy behind makerpaths is rooted in building skill level. We take rudimentary skills and place them at a Level 1. A Mastery skill is at level 6. Our philosophy is that a Mastery level is not something that is easily or often accomplished. A Level 4 Mastery skill also pushes into the concept of mass-production, perhaps starting a Kickstarter or finding investors, and bringing your product or creating to a large audience.
This philosophy is also built on the popular “20 Percent Time” Project that gives students extra time to work on passion projects.
Students have the passion, but we provide the path.
