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, September 29 - Future of Homes
At this edition of our September Makerspace, 20 boys and girls will have the chance to design, construct, and code their own future home with micro-bits and delve into what the technology, sustainability, and sense of community would mean to them.
Saturday, October 27- Robotics of Smart Homes
In this mischievous October Makerspace, we’ll use our few bewitching hours to apply robotics to our vision of our future smart homes. Join us as we create & code by building a moving robot with cardboard and servo motors!
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.
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! Curious? Click here to see the photo album. Want to try it again at home? Click on our slime recipes!!
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!
