Last week we headed down to Somerset House to visit Makerversity and drop in on a session being held in their fantastic creative space.
In partnership with the educational company Pearson, Makerversity have launched The Pearson Lab – “A classroom of the future” – providing space for unique learning experiences for young people across London; from toddlers to 25-year-olds. Makerveristy aim to give young people a supplement to their standard education experience by providing a more hands on approach to technology, including Kano Kits, Scratch, Raspberry Pis and 3D Printers.
“At Makerversity we’re a home for making, learning and emerging practice in the widest context; be it physical, digital or even edible. Makerversity offers space for startups and businesses or those interested in experimenting with new technologies and digital fabrication” said Tom Tobia, Founder of Makerveristy. “We’re excited to be partnering with Pearson to develop a learning space for a collaborative community of global makers and problem-solvers, who are interested in changing the future of education for the better.”
