Makerversity DIY is a pioneering curriculum for schools designed by Makerversity, a thriving community of emerging creative businesses in central London, UK.
Our simple and exciting lesson plans enable educators to incorporate making and hands on activities into core subjects. Our lessons empower teachers and pupils to develop new skills, work together and gain knowledge in core subjects.
We believe in the transformative power of hands-on learning. Making encourages pupils to test and learn through iterations and problem-solving. Our dynamic and exciting way of learning makes it easy to excite and educate pupils of all abilities, and it’s affordable, something which until now has been very challenging to run in a school environment.
