Creative Technologists

In this program, MakerBay provides tailored creative technology training and personal development mentorship to the refugees from RunHK.

Acquire new skills

Participants acquire new skills through basic operations of the machine training such as laser cutting, woodworking, metalworking etc.

Build portfolio

Participants apply the technology they learn to do something positive for their community. It can have a social impact, environmental impact or cultural significance. The work would be documented in detail as Portfolio and Exhibition material.

Impact community positively

We are building a community. Students become mentors for the next generation. Knowledge passes on, the family grows and so does our impact.
In this level, participants learn about machine maintenance, advanced health and safety, supply chain about the specific technology, pedagogy, training techniques and methodology, documentation making.


By the end of the program, the participants will have completed 2 – 4 Impact projects documented in an online portfolio and have the ability to teach the skills they learnt as instructors and to present and speak about their work publicly.
