Build a Makerspace for Young People

Andrew Collins, Raspberry Pi Foundation

Embrace the maker movement - build a makerspace in your community

A makerspace is an area inside a school, library or other public facility, which young people can use to apply digital skills to the real world, exploring ideas and making things collaboratively.

This online course will show you how to create a makerspace in your community. You’ll explore different approaches to makerspaces, understand the pedagogy that underpins the maker movement, and get practical advice on getting started.

By the end of the course, you’ll understand the benefits of embracing making and know how to find partners to help you build a successful makerspace in your community.

This course is designed for anyone who wants to build a makerspace for young people. You might be a school or community librarian, a primary or secondary school teacher, a school governor, a member of a parent-teacher association or a museum education officer.

To take part in the course learners need access to free programming software Scratch and Python
