Future Make

The club for little hands with big futures.

Future Make is an after-school club, a holiday programme and family entertainment designed for 7-11-year-olds.

Participants are supported through a range of technical, creative and applied challenges where they pit their imagination, skills and competencies against the challenges of the future. Judged against the real skills wheel (our tool to describe 21st century skills) our young people develop the confidence, experience and insight required to become a Future Maker.


We live in a time of mass extinction with the irreversible impacts of climate change about to hit our world. Business, civil society and activists are crying out for a generation of creative, socially minded technologists to find a way through what’s coming. Brave, collaborative and resourceful; we call this a generation of Future Makers.
