What do the Maker Challenge Programmes involve?


The Mega-Maker Challenge programme is a fully funded programme aimed at students aged 14-18.  Students will have the opportunity to develop an idea and see it through to creation. With access to cutting edge technologies, they'll learn to use a range of making tools and techniques with the support of Imperial staff and students. They will gain a range of skills from practical hands-on use of equipment to a myriad of soft skills including product development, team-building, presenting and communicating. At the end of the programme there will also be a showcase for the parents, teachers and families to engage with.

The programme involves three full days – two consecutive Saturdays of induction and a mid-point Saturday coaching workshop, as well as 10 after school sessions once a week from 16.30-19.30 during a given term.

The Maker Challenge programme is a fully funded programme for students aged 11-14. This programme works with local secondary schools across three full days of making in the Reach Out Makerspace.
