Angad Daryani has been called a number of things: child prodigy, tech genius, entrepreneur, but he can best be described by one word - Maker. Angad quit school in 9th. grade when he felt his curiosity was being killed by the education system. With the help of online tutorials and open source instructions, Angad has learned to apply the art of science to create 3-D printers, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) kits and a Virtual Brailler, an e-reader for the blind. Watch Angad's TEDx talk to see what drives him to "make things."
I feel that our future is in good hands with the likes of Angad Daryani! AND he is inspiring so many other young people. Parents, grandparents -- SHARE this video with your amazing youngsters. Kids -- if school is crushing your curiosity/ your creativity/ your love of science... then quit... BUT ONLY IF you are VERY highly motivated to take charge of your own education. Life-long learning is the way forward. And our dear Earth needs all the "Makers" we can muster. Hope, Peace, Love All.
