European Maker Week

Celebrating European Maker Week 2018 by making innovating and designing with children through engineering and science www.anyone4science.com

This Week is European Maker Week. ‘What is that?’- You might ask. European Maker Week runs from the 12th to the 19th of May and is a week dedicated to celebrating makers and innovators all across Europe.

We are celebrating this European Maker Week in our science clubs by making bath salts in our cosmetic science classes and we are also making stress balls.

Join in the celebrations by designing and making something at home! Be sure to share your creations with us on social media! @anyone4science #anyone4science #emweek18

European Maker Week is celebrated across the 28 countries of the European Union. The Aims of European Maker Week are:

  1. To create awareness about the importance of the maker culture to foster an education of creativity and innovation in all schools across Europe;
  2. To build bridges between local authorities and media and the main players of their own local makers ecosystems.
