Why we should teach our children Woodworking in school

RATE THIS:

Doug Stowe is one of the greatest proponents of Woodworking education in America. In this short video he lays out a compelling case for children to learn woodworking in schools: Woodworking is a gateway to understanding material properties, engineering, and the environment. Via woodworking kids are exposed to design, drawings, the importance of tools in our lives, and why planning ahead is so important. Lastly, woodworking activity strengthens the mind-hand connection, and contributes to the buildup of confidence in the mind of a young child.
