“I Make, Therefore I Am” – Digital Makers for a Digital Society

The IMDA Digital Maker Programme aims to nurture a new generation of digital natives with a passion to create with technology and solve real-world problems through a culture of innovation and co-creation. The programme encourages students and adults to tinker and explore the possibilities of coding and making with a mini-computer called the micro:bit along with simple circuitries and sensors. The presentation will show how IMDA engages schools and the wider community with coding and making to help prepare citizens for a digital society.
