at the Fab Lab

There are two courses:

For those aged between 11-16 years old from 9am to 4pm Monday 4 to Friday 8 August
For those aged between 8-11 years old from Monday 18 to Friday 22 August

This summer in the Fab Lab they will be running week long summer schools. The aim of these is to have fun in a creative way involving young people in design and making activities where they can make interest and useful things by sketching, designing and using digital equipment in a fully supervised and safe environment.

Fab Lab is a workshop equipped with a laser cutter, 3D printer, CNC router and vinyl cutter where you can develop craft, engineering, electronics and product design projects.

The summer school will be based in a 5 days program were the kids will work on projects centred on solving problems and learning about design and digital fabrication. We aim to encourage the next generation of designers, makers, engineers and inventors and entrepreneurs!

We will be running two courses; the first one will be for those aged between 11-16 years old from 9am to 4pm Monday 4th to Friday the 8th of August. The second summer school will be for kids aged between 8-11 years old from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd of August. The cost will be £85 for the week, (VAT and materials included.)  Maximum numbers will be 10 people, so we need you to book in quickly so you don’t miss the chance of a great week for your kids where they will be learning how to make cool and fun things in the Fab Lab! We aim to inspire!

The programme will include activities such as:

Making craft projects like jewellery, printing blocks or a puzzle on the laser cutter
Silk screen printing your own fabric, T-shirt or bag using a vinyl cut stencil
Making a glider and test flying it
Making a customised lollipop mould
Working in teams on engineering projects
Designing simple furniture on the CNC router
Having fun with electronics
Designing and making mechanical toys
Design and erect a survival shelter

Subject to change, as we find more exciting projects for you to make!
