Coronavirus (COVID 19)

Due to the changing situation with COVID-19 we have decided to cancel events with schools and school children until 30 May 2020. Since we won’t be carrying out face to face teaching we would not be able to guarantee having sufficient student mentors to supervise our face-to-face programmes. Our first priority is the well-being of our staff, students and visitors. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact the programme manager / Imperial visitor if you have any questions or concerns and check the website for updated information.


The Proto-Maker Challenge programme is fully funded programme for students aged 11-14. The programme works with secondary schools local to White City and involves three full days of making in the Reach Out Makerspace and two after school mentoring sessions.

How do I apply?

At present we do not take individual applications for the Proto-Maker Challenge, but please do sign up for our newsletter to keep up to date with other Outreach activities.

If you are a teacher and interested in your school getting involved with the Proto-MAker Challenge, please contact Reach Out Makerspace Coordinator Kate Mulcahy.
