Our unique methodology (created and owned by the MyMachine Global Foundation):
IDEA: children from elementary/kindergarten schools invent their own ‘Dream Machine’. Anything goes. The main criterion is that it’s relevant for the child who really, really wants it.
CONCEPT: higher education students (e.g. product design, game design students, engineers, architect students, art students) propose one or more solutions to design those machines.
The best solutions – according to the children – then are selected and further developed.
WORKING PROTOTYPE: technical secondary school students build real prototypes of those machines, assisted by the kids who invented them and the higher education students who designed them.
Throughout this whole process the children, pupils and students can use the expertise and support of a wide range of local corporations and organizations that share a common view on STE(A)M, creativity in education, entrepreneurship, open education, project-based learning and maker-centered learning.
