Ever thought about creating your own makerspace? Learn how with our free, three week course ‘Makerspaces for Creative Learning’ on FutureLearn. Start straight away and learn at your own pace or join an educator supported run from Monday 8th November.

Makerspaces are physical locations that provide hands-on opportunities for students to design, experiment, build, and invent. This course will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to visit makerspaces in your area, or even better, set up one of your own. You’ll delve into the importance of cultivating creative mindsets alongside scientific and engineering disciplines, and learn how makerspaces are an effective way to do this.

This course is designed for anyone interested in makerspaces and how they are used in formal and informal learning spaces. It will be of particular interest for people who use or work in early years settings, schools, museums, libraries, community settings and parents or teachers.
