Young people should check out DIY.org, a new online community that encourages kids to make things and share their results, awarding badges for practicing new skills to make the learning even more fun. It’s like an open-source Boy Scouts for all kids, without adult leaders to get in the way or deny anyone participation out of intolerance. Check out the DIY video at the bottom and in just three minutes you can learn a simple process to make ice cream!
DIY is a club for Makers to earn Skills. DIY Makers do challenges, share their work with the community, and earn patches for the Skills they accomplish.
DIY was founded in November 2011. We’re a bunch of makers and doers. We’ve made websites, online communities, offline communities, films, cars, games, robots, sculptures, and houses.
We work in a storefront near Dolores Park in San Francisco — look for the paw print on our door!
