Sylvia Todd’s boundless enthusiasm shines through in everything she does.
In an era where it’s easy for tweens to zone out in front of the screen of their choice, an 11 year-old California girl is making the choice to be on the screen ... teaching a global audience how to make cool things.
She's the tween queen of the Maker Movement.
I want more people to become less focused on success, and more on just trying new things outside their comfort zone.
...a very, very smart young lady.
She handed me a cute business card with robots she drew on it... I watched episode 1. It's super awesome!
...someone who's making science really, really fun...
...the video’s directorial style is so fine it makes Rushmore-era Wes Anderson look like a hobo. Just sayin’.
With the poise, wit and clarity of a seasoned television host, Sylvia explains the electronic principles of light–emitting diodes, resisters, potentiometers, grounds and compiling the program you download to create a strobe light.
I’m sure her enthusiasm, and choice of role models is enough to make her dad proud.
...Sylvia uses puppetry, theme music and her home as a laboratory to demonstrate how things work. She makes science fun, mostly by having fun herself.
Sylvia Todd is a bright young tinkerer on the go.
...she seems to really enjoy what she’s doing and she has great production values...
So there was this kid in the US who decided to make stuff with her Dad. And they put it on YouTube. And almost immediately it went viral. Then millions of kids across the world started making stuff again. How super awesome.
We love @MakerSylvia's Super-Awesome Maker Show! MUST WATCH!
You did a great job!
