Gentlemen, ladies, and partially-sentient automata—start your irons!
Guest post by Jigsaw member James Gray
Right now, teams from thirty hackerspaces, makerspaces, and diffuse conglomerates of autodidactically-inclined individuals around the world are putting their heads together in preparation for what promises to be a creative contest of quasi-mythological, yea, of nigh- legendary proportions. Their goal: to capture eternal glory in a friendly six-week engagement, drawing upon their skills to create a project of educational merit and some portability. In short, these bold citizen-scientists are locked in a duel of ingenuity where the most imaginative builder will triumph, each putting their skills to work to Do Something about the problems facing education today.
