    Our Humble Beginnings

    An idea to inspire childrens digital learning started with 4 schools in the Glasgow area reaching 2000 children with our Space Unicorn Maths.

  • March 2019

    10,000 children and counting!

    Our volunteers took Make It Happen to 16 schools and 10,000 pupils! Using our low tech paper competition entries and Thunkable to build winning apps with the pupils inspired us as much as the children!

  • April 2019

    1,500+ app installs around the world!

    Our winning apps have been installed across the Globe from China to the USA to the Republic of Congo to Argentina and Vietnam!
