Jockey Club YouthCreate Series — Maker Education
This is a story of
growth and companionship
In this three-year YouthCreate series, MakerBay, as a Technical Partner, has been committed to bringing maker education and mindset to the next generation. Through technical training and co-create community projects, the youth and social workers have used the skills and mindset they have learned to create, and work together towards the goal of improving the community.
Three years have passed. With the joint efforts of social workers, young people and MakerBay, this project has come to a perfect end. But everyone is still connected after that. Through this program, we realized that maker education is about learning from each other, and understanding, through communication, the needs of youth centers and even the entire community. This way, we helped the community centers establish maker education, and make use of their creativity and knowledge of the community to create for the betterment of the community.
In three years…
In three years, we have worked with 6 youth centers across the city,
paving the way for co-creation with the youth.
“Together, we learn and mature”
“We are companions”
“Treasure new perspectives”

In Hong Kong, we have a large and diverse community of makers. To provide you with a comprehensive overview, we gathered information on many of the Hong Kong makers, maker groups, makerspaces and resources, creating the Local Maker Map.
