The MakerMove mobile makerspace offers an exciting opportunity to engage with STEM learning in early years settings, schools, libraries, museums and community spaces.
If you are based in Sheffield City Region, we bring all of the resources and materials to you, providing a day-long series of workshops in which participants can design and make a range of objects and engage in STEM challenges.
We offer creative and playful learning activities in which arts are central – a STEAM approach – and settings can choose in advance the kinds of activities they wish to offer (e.g. electronics, woodwork, robotics, digital creativity, a mixture of all of these) and/ or any themes they wish the workshops to focus on such as the environment, water, seasons and so on – whatever suits the need of the setting.
All we need is a place to safely park the van, and a room that we can use to set up tables and equipment. We also need access to electricity. We bring with us three fully-trained assistants, who all have Enhanced DBS status.
We would set up for 4 sessions per day, depending on your timetable. Dependent upon space, we can accommodate up to 60 participants in each session. We could accommodate 30 children in the Early Years Foundation Stage and KS1, but if you have parent volunteers, that number could expand.
The cost of a day’s visit is £750, which covers all equipment and resources. In addition, you would be left with a MakerKit, which provides resources to enable you to deliver maker sessions.
You can submit an enquiry using the form link below. We will get back to you within 3 working days. We are taking bookings for Sept onwards, but dates will be provisional due to COVID-19.
