Pakistan has an education emergency – 6.7 million Pakistanis aged 5-9 are
not enrolled in primary school. At the secondary level, the number of
out-of-school children jumps to 25 million, with only 39 percent of boys
and 29 percent of girls enrolled. The system of education discourages
critical thinking and lacks opportunities for interdisciplinary
collaboration. This talk presents findings from Make-i-stan, a makerspace
that welcomes interdisciplinary collaboration and critical thinking through
learning by doing in an informal setting.
