50 Dangerous Things

Thank you for attending our webinar “5 Dangerous Things Every School Should Do.” Designed for educators and educational administrators, this live 45-minute webinar presents five ideas about how to make school more engaging and effective. We hope you found it interesting and useful.

If you are interested in bringing these ideas to your own students, here are some resources that you might find useful:

  1. The Electric Motors Catalyst. We created this kit specifically to make it easy to bring high-engagement learning to any student in any school. Buy a kit to try out, or email us at to learn about our classroom solutions.
  2. Tinkering Labs Resources for Educators. This is where you’ll find our materials on NGSS connections, classroom facilitation, and how-to videos.
  3. The Brightworks Website. Brightworks is the K-12 lab school that Gever founded in 2011, and the website has interesting information on pedagogy and a very active blog.
  4. The Tinkering School Website. Tinkering School is the camp that started a movement. You can see examples of past projects on the blogs. To learn about how Tinkering School got started, check this TED talk.
  5. Gever’s book 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do). Written for both parents and educators, the book presents 50 activities that are interesting, eye-opening, enlightening or just plain fun.

If you have any questions or comments, we would love to hear from you. Email us at
