ENABLING CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVERS
Enabling schools to inspire future inventors, engineers, makers and digital masterminds!
Equipping Children with Creative Skills for the Digital Age
MakerEd UK is a national initiative designed to raise the profile of Maker Education in the UK and help schools and communities to provide makerspaces and learning opportunities to help prepare the next generation for the Digital Age through creative making.
Maker education is a learner centred approach to teaching creativity and problem solving using tools and technology such as 3D printing, electronics, robotics, computing and materials. It is about nurturing learners who can take personal ownership of a problem, explore ways to solve that problem, make something and share their experience. MakerEd UK is helping educators to bring Maker Education and Makerspaces to schools and libraries across the UK.
"It's fantastic to see how easily the children have picked up 3D design and
printing in such a short time"

Do you want to become a Maker School?
We work with educational establishments and industry leaders
to develop and deliver outstanding training, support and resources to help
schools offer the best opportunities to their pupils. If you would like to
be involved or support the initiative, get in touch.
We offer a supportive training and coaching plan and help with new equipment to enable teachers to introduce and integrate maker education into school.
LIBRARIES & MUSEUMS
We believe maker education should be access able to all and can help you turn an area in your library or museum into a space for the local community to get hands-on and creative with digital technology.
We want everyone to unleash their inner-maker and we believe that every child has amazing creativity, curiosity and ingenuity. With the right tools and some imagination we know you can make some amazing things.
