MakeThingsDoStuff - the UK’s Full Time MakerParty Scene!

Make Things Do Stuff is a campaign to inspire young people aged between 13 and 18 to make things in the digital world. It aims to help them to look beyond being a consumer and instead to create things, understand why things happen and to take ownership of it for themselves.

The campaign offers support, advice, resources and tools that are ideal for use in schools and at home, whether it’s a lesson, after-school club or competition. There’s something for everyone, whatever level they (or you) are at – and it’s all designed to nurture understanding and enjoyment through practical experience.

You can find things to Make and Do here:

And here’s a look at some photos of the cool stuff we did this year:
  • (1) Roundhouse: Webmaking Workshop (10 Nov) was a day-long workshop with 10 young people using Popcorn Maker to create an action-oriented, promotional website.
  • (2,3) MadLab / Coder Dojo (13 Oct)  Code Club, MadLab, Coder  Dojo, Raspberry Pi, and Webmaker ran impromptu “office hours” style workshops in a huge warehouse for about 50 young people aged 8+
  • (4,5,6) Wired Next Generation (19 Oct) WIRED magazine’s youth-focused event of the year. Webmaker and Freeformers teamed up to run a workshop on “How to Make Your Own Sci-Fi Movie” using Popcorn Maker.
  • (7,8,9) MozFest Maker Party! (25 - 27 Oct)  A fantastic Maker Party with over 17 orgs from Hive New York, Hive Chicago, Hive Toronto, Hive India, Hive Indonesia, Make Things Do Stuff, and  other partners.

What we made together at MozFest 2013:

#MozFest is our annual gathering of the tribes. A public event where passionate, creative and thoughtful people from around the world meet up to hack ideas for improving the open web, it’s one of our most exciting and dynamic introductions for the growing community of Mozillians.
