We are eager to take on new challenges. Since the day MakerBay was established, we have been working with makers, community centers and the public in pursuit of creating an impact to the society, addressing environmental and social issues.
We are building a floating oyster hatchery and setting it up in North point. On the roof, solar panels will power the production of hydrogen, the cleanest fuel for the future.
Together with the construction of the giant oyster, we will be hosting workshops, open to the public for FREE, during which you will learn how oysters are contributing to the ecosystem, having building and playing with boats and witness the magic of clean energy.
Jockey Club YouthCreate Series
For the past 3 years, MakerBay has trained several hundred teachers, social workers, youth workers and several thousand young people to innovation and maker skill set and mindset.
Local Maker Map
There are a lot of developed makers/maker groups, forming a great network altogether. From individual craftsmen to companies and maker space on a larger scale, they are all inseparable parts of the whole maker culture.
We created this map to provide you with a nexus of contents about the local maker culture. As the maker scope will only continue to grow, YOU are also welcome to contribute to this map!
“Jockey Club Community Sustainability Fund – Impact Maker Project ” is a step-by-step approach for youth to develop innovation skills and a problem-solving mindset to solve the challenges outlined in the SDG’s.

In order to conserve our beautiful corals, MakerBay has partnered with Ocean Park to roll out a program to equip Hong Kong youth with AI technology and knowledge about coral diversity to help build the AI model for coral reef mapping of Hong Kong.
Touch Tung O
We visited Tung-O Ancient Trail, a road that connects Tai O, a traditional fishing village, and Tung Chung, the city that neighbors one of the busiest international airports in the world. We connected with the locals, and by using design thinking and other activities, we came up with solutions to help them improve their quality of life while maintaining their cultural identity.
