Calling Young Makers, Crafters, Inventors and Designers! If you’re aged 12-17 and interested in opportunities to experiment with science and art, get creative and learn new skills why not come along to our Maker Club taster day? We are developing a new makerspace in The Basement at OCFI so why not drop-in to explore the tools (including 3D printers and a laser cutter) and services the space has to offer. Try out some robotics kit and chat with local engineers and makers about their maker projects. Meet other young creatives and our friendly, helpful team.

For those of you who are regular Maker Club attendees, learn more about how the club is evolving with more emphasis on longer-term, team-based projects such as the First LEGO League, Raspberry Pi Jams and STEM Video Game Challenges. You can of course still work on your own designs as well.

At 11.00 and 14.00 there will be a live-build demo of a video game in Unity using C#. If you want to join in bring along your laptop with Unity pre-downloaded.

Science Oxford welcomes everyone to our clubs. If you have additional needs, please get in touch on [email protected] to discuss how we can best support you.

Booking is not essential but would help us plan and make sure we have enough kit available for everyone. Please use the time slots to indicate when you will arrive – you are welcome to stay for as long as you’d like!
