For the last 7 years I have been exploring how best to get learners excited and hands on with digital making. Having developed undergraduate degree courses in Arduino micro controller making and data visualisation (using Processing), I  am well placed to take these learning experiences to a broader audience. Working in collaboration with Science festivals, Charities and schools, I have designed and delivered a number of very successful digital making experiences, from a 45 minute taster to a full day carefully structured workshop. Well defined learning aims, appropriate technology selection and enthusiastic delivery are key to engaged learners.

As my PhD comes to a close, I’m keen to try and apply its findings and support the increased interest and need in getting young people thinking, making and solving their problems with technology.
