The magic of making: Dale Dougherty on CNN's 'The Next List'

Dale Dougherty believes everyone is a maker. Whether you're into cooking or art or you're someone who tinkers in the garage, we all have the ability to make something that has meaning to us. Dougherty is on a mission to empower people to make what’s important to them.

CNN's "The Next List" recently featured this leader of the "maker" movement. Take a look at these videos to see what he's all about.


And here's some background: Dougherty organizes a yearly event called Maker Faire, where people gather to show off their projects and creative concoctions. He publishes Make magazine, which is jam-packed with fantastic do-it-yourself projects – everything from making squishy circuits to building your own robot. And now he’s taking his make philosophy into classrooms across the country, with Makerspace where Dale wants to empower teachers and students to make things – whatever they want! Dale is at the helm of a full-on movement.
