How does it work – Model
The DIYguru Project provides a common platform where students and mentors can interact with each other on a particular skillset. The model is based on evidence of providing learning-through-doing (active learning) in a social environment, creating informal, networked, peer-led, and shared learning motivated by fun and self-fulfillment.
DIYguru onboard DIY Mentors who are experienced in a particular skillset. They deploy one mentor to each partner High school & College. DIY Mentors are embedded in area schools and work with students by teaching courses, providing coaching and counseling, and applying maker culture change techniques to motivate students.
