Hackidemia is a global community of 40 local chapters that organize science, art and technology hands-on workshops for kids and parents.
This year we developed a new mobile maker lab for schools aiming to bring this interactive way of learning in schools and equip children with 21st century skills like critical thinking, creativity and problem solving.
Our kit costs €150 and can be pre-ordered, it comes with materials for 30 projects, instructions and games and quizzes (example air quality module). If you would like to propose this to your school, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will provide you with more information.

Our mission is to enable creative making for social impact.
Create the structure to make the HacKIDemia Kits available and develop an ongoing framework to develop, produce and distribute new HacKIDemia Kits in a global network.
What are the building blocks in order to realize our ambition in the next year?
Use and test 100 Hackidemia Kits (minimum manufacturing batch) + curriculum in 3 public schools in Europe in the next 3 months.
We need to raise € 10.000 for manufacturing costs and recruit teachers and principals in at least 3 public schools for this pilot.
In the next few days the group of carefully selected Creative Minds will be named.
- Use and test 100 Hackidemia Kits (minimum manufacturing batch) and the curriculum in 3 public schools in Europe in the next 3 months would be great next steps.
- We need to raise € 10.000 for manufacturing costs and recruit teachers and principals in at least 3 public schools for this pilot.
- Select potential partners and develop strategic partnerships to grow exponentially.
