Future Making is a fast-paced, hands-on session for 9-12 year olds and their guardians that explores Human-Centred Design and Design Thinking.

In an exciting and fun two-hour workshop, children uncover a problem and are guided through steps to invent a creative solution. This puts the full cycle of the Design Thinking process into action: interviewing, observing, reflecting on feedback, sketching and ultimately developing a prototype.

The workshop comprises a structured series of time-boxed activities where each step builds on a previous one. Children work in pairs and interact with their partner to complete each exercise, while being supported by professional creative problem solvers (human-centred designers) from Syfte.

At the conclusion of the workshop, children can take home a physical prototype of their invention. They will have learned valuable tools for creative problem solving in their everyday lives. They will also be given a design challenge to practice their newly acquired skills in their own time.

Please note: Tickets are sold in pairs: 1 child aged 9-12 years + 1 adult. It is expected that parents/guardians participate in the workshop along with their child/ren.
