APPROACH /

DIY (Do It Yourself Activities) and the Maker Movement is encouraging people of all gender, ages and backgrounds to build something with their own hands. However, recent studies have shown that teen girls are not receiving as much encouragement to participating in Making as their male peers, mostly due to safety concerns and mobility issues. In order to help solve this problem a design of mobile application that can offer Maker tutorials and support to these young girls was proposed.
