The Lighthouse Programme is a project with the aim to empower children’s creative exploration – for themselves, for their family and friends, or for the world. With the power to create, children will be able to chart their own future in this increasingly uncertain world. The characteristics of the programme are the focus on self-directedness, making and real-world expertise. Participants decide what they want to create and take their ideas beyond a piece of paper through learning by doing. They also have the opportunity to learn from people with professional industry experience.
Self Directed: Participants decide what they want to create, along the theme of “Make the Change”. Mentors do not teach but support the participants’ exploration.
Making: Participants take their ideas on paper and make them come alive. Learning by doing, participants pick up the creator mindset and making skills, in particular digital making skills.
Real-World Expertise: Participants will have the opportunity to learn from people with professional industry experience.
