Make Things Do Stuff

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

Let’s face it. The entrepreneurs of the future are right now sitting in classrooms, playing in playgrounds and maybe just maybe dreaming of what they’re going to do one day...
Whilst traditional education of course has its place, it’s recently been great to see all sorts of new initiatives and projects being developed with the aim of inspiring, motivating and educating our children in a whole new way. The latest such of these is the Make Things Do Stuffcampaign.

mtdsThe campaign which is being run by Nominet Trust, Mozilla and Nesta and is being backed by the UK government aims to transform children from being consumers into creators.
Over the summer months it plans to teach over 100,000 young people digital and creative skills through a series of events being held all across the UK . The events and workshops will cover everything from animation and coding skills through to more practical skills like soldering.

The Make Things Do Stuff website itself aims to become the definitive online resource offering all the support, advice and tools needed to try and get children excited about IT as well as bringing together all the organisations who independently are doing their bit in this area.

A whole host of partners have already come on board and committed to running events, workshops and competitions over the next few months - everyone from O2 Telefonica through to Apps for Good.

Like with all such initiatives, the more people and organisations who get involved the better. So, why not lend a hand in some way and offer your support...
