Technology is part of our culture and is playing an increasingly dominant role in our society. Citizens should not only "consume" technology, but also critically approach and design it and pass the knowledge on to future generations. It is therefore important to offer creative education within and outside schools to all children.
The maker education lab investigates how a maker mindset and 21st century skills can help with this, so that people find (better) their place in society. Learning from a making perspective is learning (by making) and connects the head and heart.
We focus on (primary and secondary) education as well as on lifelong learning, on pupils and professionals. They learn that technology is not sacred but made by humans like themselves, so they develop an active, critical and independent attitude. Our ambition is Maker Access for All.
Maker Education Lab is made possible by a subsidy from the Creative Industries Fund NL.
