do it yourself together

What: maker activities, toolkits and an online platform
Why: to build a community of young makers
For: young makers between 4 and 14 years old
With: Voordekunst, Bouwkeet, Gembird, Heutink
Where: Meekit.org

Meekit was founded to connect and empower young makers. Ever since, Meekit has transformed in a total concept consisting of three elements:

Maker activities

Meekit organizes maker activities that stimulate the imagination and curiosity of children. An example is Draw It Together, an interactive installation where young makers can become part of a big art piece by creating their own Drawbot.

Toolkits

By providing toolkits full of materials, Meekit gives children and their families, schools and libraries the chance to work with technologies and to use their creativity.

Online platform

Meekit.org offers young makers an online environment to share their projects, skills and ideas with each other. The platform was funded by a crowdfunding campaign at Voordekunst.nl and designated “project of the month” by Voordekunst Kiest.
