I read this book and think this is an excellent idea. I teach college art classes, mostly at the intro level and I am noticing increasing numbers of students who are all thumbs with tools and materials; have never picked up a T-square, don't know how to read a ruler. I would love to see more learning at the high school level that values "maker's mind". Students would come to understand that any tool comes with a learning curve that requires patience to master. This kind of learning shouldn't be marginalized; it's a very gratifying way to gain basic problem-solving skills.
