Education is an exciting adventure which should never end. It is this belief that DesignED and makefestevents are built upon. Teachingschool students about the design and manufacturing of products has been the life long job of DesignED founder Nick Dudderidge.
Teaching in a wide range of schools from the early 1990's until the present he has always been interested in keeping abreast of emerging technologies to aid the design and development of ideas.
His latest venture is DesignED to bring technologies normally associated with expensive outlay in training and hardware within the reach of organisations keen to enable their students, without the need for them to spend excessive amounts of time or money in order to get started.
Working with schools DesignED and other organisations, we are providing community based activities that are enabling parents and children to widen their skills and feed their desire to think, create and share their ideas.
Projects can include a whole host of technologies and skills such as Computer Aided Design and Manufacture, making designs using 3D printers, Lego Control kits, Raspberry Pi, Robots, F1 in Schools Cars and Drone building , coding and flying in computer science experiments.
