Anne Holiday has this wonderful collection of short videos titled The Makers of Things, documenting "the work and workshops of the Society for Model and Experimental Engineers, a sprawling organisation with members all over the world."
SMEE isn't like any other engineering society. It's a community united by a passion for making things and testing ideas. Their unparalleled devotion to their craft is evidence of a universal truth that's relevant to us all; we learn only by doing.
