Future Makers


Future Makers is a series of exciting events that will enable children – and adults – to use new technologies for designing and making.

From Minecraft sessions at Arbeia Roman Fort to a coders’ hackathon at Stephenson Railway Museum, Future Makers seeks to inspire a new breed of makers whilst challenging preconceptions of what museums and their collections mean in the digital age.

It's all about experimenting, creating and learning new skills. Read more.
