Who : Year 9 & Year 10
When : Tuesday to Thursday
What : This is something new for 2019. It’s a build on our Zero Waste approach to the 2018 NWG Innovation Festival, to explore wealth from waste. Working with Fixit Cafe who are committed to “repair and re-use rather than refuse”.
We’ll help young people develop skills to find their own fix for broken items and to learn where to go for information, or to re-purpose them. It might be electronic stuff, gadgets or clothing.
We’ll also bring in people who can share how you can build a business. We’d ideally like to work with up to 20 students from a range of schools, probably young people who aren’t particularly inspired by studying for GCSEs and enjoy doing something practical.
