Programme Overview

Our maker programmes focus on creating physical objects and devices with digital tools and technologies. We have offered a wide range of programmess to schools, which we can implement on-premise or via remote learning platforms.

Learn how smart components can be adapted in diorama homes

 

• How to make use of upcycled materials around the household 

• How to program the BBC micro:bit using the Makecode programming environment
• How to 3D design in Tinkercad to create 3D printed items in homes, such as furniture

• How to weave with mini loom kit, that can be decorated as rugs
• How to incorporate lights and sounds in your Smart Home

Assistive Living Devices

Apply the design-thinking framework to create devices to help the elderly or physically-challenged with their daily lives

 

• Understand that Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is the most widely used method of 3D printing, and this technology is used in the 3D pens and printers in this course
• Understand how rapid prototyping can be achieved using 3D printers
• Recognise the main components of a 3D pen and a desktop 3D printer, and use these tools in a safe and responsible manner
• Have a basic knowledge of different 3D modeling techniques and be able to create, move, manipulate and edit objects in Tinkercad, a free, web-based CAD program
• Understand how design considerations can impact the success of a 3D print and apply these considerations to maximise the efficiency and accuracy of their own 3D prints
