About Maker Mondays

Welcome to the world of your imagination...  

How about you get to spend some time creating something that does not already exist? How does that make you feel? Excited, curious, creative, amazing?

It could be for just an hour, it could be for a day or it could be a whole week. You might help create the next LEGO or Minecraft or you might develop ideas to help reduce climate change.   

By 10am the first Monday of each month we will present a challenge

The challenge can be completed by individual children and young people, families, groups in a Hub…whoever is inspired to create. It’s open to everyone, as long as there is someone under 18 in your team, and you attend a Stirling school.  

 

We’ve created a workbook to help you do this and you will be using a brilliant process called Design Thinking. This is a process that designers, engineers, inventors, architects and entrepreneurs use. It helps you think creatively and can be used by everyone…well maybe not your pet hamster!  

We select up to 20 of the best ideas to show in our online gallery 

If you would like the chance to share your creation online you must upload it by 5pm on the Monday 3 weeks after the challenge is set. The Maker Mondays team will select up to 20 of the best ideas and solutions to be uploaded on the Maker Mondays website. They will be live by the time the next Maker Mondays Challenge is presented. 

Where do I start?

First thing you need to do is download the Maker Mondays workbook, which you can do here. Next familiarise yourself with the process you will follow - this can be seen on the workbook page or on the how it works page. Then simply follow the process using your worksheets to explore and form your ideas and finally draw a final prototype.
