SCULPTING A

GENERATION OF MAKERS GENERATION Z (OR “GEN-Z”) IS THE FIRST COHORT OF AMERICAN STUDENTS WHO COULD TRULY BE CALLED DIGITAL NATIVES. BORN IN 1995 OR LATER, FROM THE MOMENT THEY DEVELOPED DEXTERITIES, MANY WERE PLAYING AND LEARNING ON THEIR PARENTS’ COMPUTERS, MOBILE PHONES, TABLETS AND MORE. THIS IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE IN THE EARLY LEARNING STAGES OF A CHILD’S LIFE, AND THE IMPACT THIS GENERATION WILL HAVE ON FUTURE INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY IS A SOURCE OF SPECULATION. kWRITTEN BY LAUREN REID 130
