We would love to welcome your students onto this innovative STEM programme! Our graduates have gone on to study engineering at Oxbridge, start their own businesses, and enrol on degree apprenticeship schemes.  Please share this with any interested students and teachers. The Maker Challenge is open to everyone - future engineers, those struggling at school, those who love design, and making novices.  

Do you teach DT or Product Design?

Making Great Designs is a PDF teacher resource pack created to support GCSE students in their non-exam assessments in DT and Product Design. Filled with interactive class activities, individual exercises and helpful tips and tricks, this pack helps students improve their idea generation ability, practise iterative rapid prototyping and better document their design process. To get your free copy, contact us by email or call/text 07517551996. 

The Makerspace Manual is a book for teachers, students and anyone who has an itch to make and create. It’s packed full of the lessons we’ve learned in setting up the Dangoor Reach Out Makerspace in White City, our work with young people and our passion for making, as well as useful resources, making projects and careers guidance. The publication's goal is to encourage STEM activities and a more hands-on, alternative way of learning in a makerspace environment at schools in the UK.

To get your digital or hard copies, contact us by email or call/text 07517551996. 

Proto-Maker Challenge

The Proto-Maker Challenge is a design programme for 11-14 year olds focusing on solutions to the sustainable development goals. Up to 30 students will learn design thinking, prototyping and ideating over several workshops at the Makerspace, working to design and prototype solutions to real world problems like hunger, homelessness and climate change. We are currently accepting applications from local secondary schools for the Autumn 2022 and Summer 2023 terms. The school selects the students and there are 3 full-day workshops at the Makerspace and 2 after-school sessions at your school. If your school is interested in taking part, contact makerspace@imperial.ac.uk.
