We help early years settings, schools, libraries, museums and community spaces develop their maker education provision. We can bring our pop-up makerspace to you for workshops, activity days and events.

The Maker{Futures} programme will enable you to set up makerspaces or run maker sessions in a range of spaces, providing playful and creative ways to develop digital and STEM skills through a STEAM approach that integrates science, technology, engineering and mathematics with the arts. We offer continuing professional development resources, downloadable guides and the opportunity to book a visit from our mobile makerspace – Maker{Move}.
