Design’s cool! - Program details
Have you got a budding designer, engineer, artist or inventor in the making?
Make&Meld’s design school for kids and teens (7 – 13 years) is a unique program focusing on hands-on skills, the exploration of materials, and the design-thinking approach to making, creating, and designing.
The program aims to develop kids’ confidence and skills using a range of mainly low-tech tools and techniques to design and make their own creations using low-cost sustainable materials.
Key skills for the future developed in a fun learning environment
By introducing the design-thinking approach, kids are inspired to think creatively, to experiment, to plan, analyse and reflect, to consider the environment and society in their design solutions, and to have the confidence to shape their world for the better.
Throughout the program we focus on using the design-thinking approach to problem solving and link creativity and the arts with principles of science and engineering, all within the context of a fun and engaging hands-on learning environment.
