An update from us… Sadly, due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, we have had to cancel our Future Make Easter Holiday Clubs.
Those who have booked tickets to one of the sessions can receive either a full refund or can move their ticket to one of our summer clubs in July or August. Just get in touch with the team who will be happy to help you.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported Future Make. It’s hugely appreciated by the team and we hope once everything is back to normal that you’ll join us again.
There is some good news though…  You can get involved with our Future Make Daily Dos and weekly challenges!

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.

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.

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.
