Class trips present a unique opportunity for school children to get a one day, hands-on experience of Makerspace's different departments, ranging from prototyping, 2D design, 3D design, laser cutting, textiles, wood shop, metal shop, STEAM, textiles, arts and crafts and ceramics (some age restrictions apply to younger learners).
Students attend in groups of 15-30 at a time, and will get practical, fast-tracked sessions covering two areas of focus of your choice.
Our technical staff and instructors will be on hand to answer any questions, and will give the students an interactive and dynamic experience to showcase the wide application and common uses for each of our workshop areas, as well as the creative possibilities presented by combining various techniques together.
This option can also be tailored to focus on specific subjects from the school curriculum, for example design technology topics, or digital art and design. The school can dedicate a day to use our facility and expertise to enhance the students’ knowledge in certain areas and gain practical experience to support the development of their projects and assignments.
Target age groups from 8 - 11* and 12 - 17 years old (*Program content differs slightly to ensure safety and machine access appropriate to each age group).
