An idea to inspire childrens digital learning started with 4 schools in the Glasgow area reaching 2000 children with our Space Unicorn Maths.
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!
Our winning apps have been installed across the Globe from China to the USA to the Republic of Congo to Argentina and Vietnam!
Make It Happen Club registered as a charity SCIO SC049247! Our aim ... to Inspire Childrens Digital Learning!
Running Make It Happen workshops as part of this event for children aged 4-14 and their parents.
150 Volunteers are taking Make It Happen to 50 schools and 20,000 children, so much inspiration!
The pandemic hit many hard and made it difficult to stay connected - we gifted 100 devices to pupils and familes across Glasgow to help them connect!
Working with JPMorgan we were able to distribute 100 laptops to children between the ages 5-10 in London schools with more than 50% of the children currently on free school meals.
This simple and fun app design competition starts everyone on their journey to become Digital Creators - its also a fun activity to share with your family!
We have also linked this into the Scottish Digital Curriculum for Excellence shown in this Teacher Guide
