Our g4g Makerspace events are all about creativity, engineering, and design... while simply having fun! To do so, we invite 20 girls and boys aged 9-14 to our headquarters in Brussels once a month on a Saturday morning. It's the perfect opportunity to explore a new theme & make all the science behind "making" come to life! Parents are most welcome to join the fun, too.
Timing & Pricing
Our makerspaces are usually held the last Saturday of each month, between 9 AM and 12:30 PM.
Each individual session will cost 40 euro per child. If you decide to join us for the whole series of 3 makerspaces, we will provide you with a discount!
1 session = 40 euro 3 sessions = 90 euro
Saturday, December 15- Home-made goes Tasty & Technical
In our December Makerspace, join us as we make the most out of innovation, smart homes, and… gingerbread! Each student will have the chance to make their own edible home, complete with LED circuity and other fun technology.
Robotics of Smart Homes
In this mischievous, 7th Makerspace, we used our few bewitching hours to apply robotics to our vision of our future smart homes. Thanks to the wonderful Stanley Black & Decker's help, 30 kids got the opportunity to visit our atelier and design the homes of tomorrow. Using their trusty glue guns and some coding skills they came up with pretty innovative solutions to today’s problems! You can find the photo album of this event here!
Future of Homes
For our 6th Makerspace, kids go to think about what the future of homes could be… After designing and drawing their ideas for an improved future, they brought them to life by building models of their inventions using microbits. Ideas were plentiful and we can’t wait to see if the homes of 2030 will have any walls that move to face the sun, fold able walls, underwater features, detachable rooms, scanning fridge...If we believe in the inventors who joined us last week, you can count on them!

In this 5th edition we elevated the makerspace to new levels... and built rockets and planes! We learned about water and about rockets in a fun way, before building our very own water rockets and get them airborne using water pressure. Check out our photo album here!
At our fourth #g4gmakerspace, we combined two things we love: science and food! We made a few delicious recipes and reflected about them on a molecular level: volcanic cupcakes, molecular mousse, dry ice ice cream and spherication of honey, ketchup and raspberry. Click here to see the photo album!
Our third #g4gmakerspace was all about robots and racing. We made bristlebots and scribblebots while learning about circuits and experienced first hand how they work in practice. After creating amazing designs, we had our bots race against each other! Click here if you want to see the photo album. Click on the "instructions" button if you want to try it again at home!
Slime meets Design
The theme of our second edition of #g4gmakerspace was Slime meets Design. We experimented by making slime, "Non-Newtonian" fluid, and putty; group ideating as we figured out how to apply these fun & funky materials into everyday needs, and finally prototyping our idea into life!

In our very first #g4gmakerspace, we showed the link between science, technology and engineering by exploring circuitry. The kids had a chance to tinker their very own LED creation using batteries, conductive thread, and colourful fun felt - all the while learning to perfect sewing techniques & electrical circuits!
