In 2019 Lancashire Library Services approached us to develop a Makerspace education programme that would deliver digital making activities in libraries across Lancashire county.
We developed a complete programme that included training for staff and volunteers who had little or no prior knowledge of the subject, and we provided support and equipment in the form of Makercarts.
In September 2019 we ran a two-day training course for library staff to help build confidence and skills in designing and delivering digital making events. We then rolled out the Makercarts, which held a range of digital making equipment including Code Club Maker Kits and Robotics kits, across three libraries.
Following a successful roll out of the Makerspace programme in 2019, we also worked with Lancashire Libraries to design and deliver top-up kits, a collection of add-on equipment selected for Lancashire Libraries’ Makercarts to expand the reach of the programme.
