Watch a new MakerSpace case study from us here at the iOi about the importance of imagination and maker skills.

Children in primary school are embarking on their first experiences of education. Furthermore, as Alex Gingell, Marlborough Primary School’s Deputy Head Teacher says, they often do this as part of a diverse group, for whom in the UK, English is not always a first language.

A MakerSpace like this one allows children to be a part of their education. It makes the learning experience in the classroom supportive, collaborative and fun – an essential route to engagement. As one of the pupils says, ‘making’ teaches the invaluable skill of persistence, to “keep trying”; a vital skill to have when approaching new challenges throughout life.
