What if higher education was not a pre-set 4 year experience, but rather an On-Demand - Access Economy style lifetime of learning?

The path to and through college does not have to be linear. How might we support offering many paths, that undulate, double back, & diverge.

Many kids think college is an unattainable foreign concept. What if students experienced college & campus life starting in 6th grade?

Chris commented on STEAM skills are super powers! Host a STEAM ComicCon

This might be my favorite idea ever! My kids would totally love this - because it is relevant to them and their individual passions. When I look at the effort spent by my daughter in putting together her ComicCon cosplay costume it is easy to see how invested a student can be in making, creating, building, and learning something when they deeply care. 

This idea is like all the best parts of a science fair, without the baggage that they tend to carry. A teacher friend once commented to me why they hate science fair's which was that "they are rarely about real science, and almost never fair!"

This idea is like a CosplayMakerFaire mashup where kids explore and tinker with things they already love and care about - and learn along the way!

Anyways. I sooo love this idea and think kids would as well.

Chris commented on Exposure

Yes a hundred times. And you know what! these people exist! We live in a pretty cool time when folks like Adam Savage and Kari Byron, and Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson (thanks Michael Schurr ) have fan clubs.

So how do we create more of these amazing people for our students to love and follow?
How do teachers become these people?

I think the trick is to use STEM in ways that are relevant to kids. That's the one thing all those people above have found a way to do!

love the co-learning aspect of this.
