DIY: Skill Patches

While working on a curriculum project that requires students to take on different industry roles (e.g. designer, inventor, scientist) a friend of mine told me about a website, DIY.ORG, which has some similarities.

After looking through the website I am a big fan. The website is super intuitive, looks good, and has some solid ideas for people interested in Do It Yourself (DIY) projects. One aspect I really like is the resources they culled to inform different projects. The skill badges aspect is appealing as well since students often enjoy challenges and curriculum choices.
