Young people have decreasing opportunities and limited access to experience hands on and project based learning.
We conceived of FixCamp as a programme which would challenge young people to use their creativity and ingenuity applied to the biggest problems of today: Housing, Education, Transport and Living Together. The Royal Academy of Engineering funded it and we delivered it in South London to 300 children in the summer of 2018, who used leather and sticks, laser cutters and 3-d printers to bring their ideas to life.
Everything was done in house, including concept, development, production, logistics and delivery. It stands as one of the most worthwhile things we’ve done. More about FixCamp
In 2021 we trained and licenced The Museum of Making, in the city of Derby, to run an adapted version for their audiences: FixCamp Summer School programme.
