Future Make

The club for little hands with big futures.

Future Make is an afterschool club, a holiday programme, a competition format, and a brand of merchandise 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.

WHY:

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.

Extraordinary Times

I think that we live in pretty extraordinary times, so much so I can find myself getting a bit numb to it all. A time of mass extinction, a time when politics feels like its breaking down and a time when things I always thought were certain are ever so shaky. At the same time, we live in a rapidly…

Facing a Creative Future

For some, 21st century technical advances are the great leap forwards, bringing the undoubted benefits of higher productivity, reliability, availability and increased productivity.
