What is maker education?

A growing movement internationally, maker education provides children and young people with the skills, knowledge and habits of mind to address real world problems using both high and low tech tools, materials and technologies. 

What is Maker{School}?

Maker{School}, from the University of Sheffield, supports primary and early years settings to develop their own maker-centred learning.  We've worked with teachers, researchers and maker education experts to develop a high quality and carefully structured programme. Whatever skills, experience or equipment you have, you can get started with Maker{School}.



Who is the event for?

The event is for early years settings, primary schools and special schools that are interested in developing their maker education. It is free for schools that have registered as a Maker{School} and those already working towards their bronze, silver and gold award. If you are new to Maker{School} or you just want to find out more please contact us to discuss your requirements.
