Pittsburgh is a hotbed of something known as the Maker Movement, which can encompass anything from designing robots to sewing your own clothes. It melds high tech and low tech, it touches all ages, and it teaches skills that are useful in everyday life and necessary for the 21st Century. We profile four young "Makers" and just a few of the women and men who are "Making" leaders, and see how the Maker Movement is motivating local youngsters to explore and grow.
