Witty Ditty Kidz workshops are part of the North London Skills Collaborative, a team of designers, maker-crafters, artists, tech-heads, coordinators, practitioners and organisations, who pool our resources, skills and passion for design and technology together, to help develop children's critical thinking and STEAM skills using innovative and fun ways to do so.
After many years of design being fantastically 2D, there's a new kid in town – 3D digital design. Children now live in a world where smartphones, computers, and smart systems are a part of their daily lives. The world is changing and children and parents need to change with it.
If you haven't heard already, 3D printing is a technology that is starting to change the world and is a very cool way to get children interested in STEM activities. 3D printing is so new, the possibilities of its application and the possible career choices are endless and we at the NLSC are right here at the cutting edge.
Alongside 3D printing, graphic design is also a great way to develop creative and critical thinking, when kids look at the 2D world around them, graphic design is everywhere we look, and part of the fabric of everyday life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUeiZ6c6EBw
"Innovators are nurtured, not born, and we should start nurturing these skills as early as possible." – Codomo, Future-Proofing Children.
Many schools, libraries and community centres are now trying to bring design, maker-craft and digital tech into the mainstream curriculum – and that's where we can help. To find out more about future workshops and FREE taster events, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
With our workshops for little designers and tech-heads of the future, the world will be their oyster.
