I can't rate this highly enough! My daughter has been doing a Future Make course for the last 9 weeks, last one next week and she loves it! Run by approachable and knowledgeable staff and she has enjoyed the experience of using different technologies and mediums.Parent of Future Maker
We get to use equipment, tool and materials that we do not normally use at school on a daily basis and also we have the freedom to create what we want.BellaFuture Maker

Future Make Challenges
During lockdown, we want children to be enjoying themselves as much as possible. As we can’t host any clubs at the moment, we’re bringing Future Make to you – introducing Future Make Challenges. We’ll be posting a series of challenges over the next few weeks designed to engage children in interesting, educational and, most importantly, fun activities to keep them entertained during lockdown.
Set around the four Future Make roles of media creator, extreme engineers, ideas designer and remote operator, these challenges will help children to to think about and develop 21st century skills.
Different to our Daily Dos, these challenges are more open ended. We’re setting up problems to be solved, offering some hints and tips. Each is structured with extension activity and thinking for inquisitive youngsters in mind and also accompanied by a mid-week Q&A webinar for support and ideas sharing.
