Build the Change is an event where we inspire children to use their imagination in a fun, social and environmental context, and where we foster their creativity and promote social interaction. It’s a tool within a framework, but with open ended solutions in a hands-on, minds-on fun experience.
It’s a theme related event e.g. “Build your future school, neighborhood or city” and by doing this we give children a voice.
In 2018 we provided 3,000 primary schoolchildren in London with coding and robotics-based challenges as a part of the RE-CODE London programme. The programme is aimed at helping to build children’s confidence, creative problem-solving, and STEAM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) and is a partnership with the Mayor of London, Raising Robots and the Institute of Imagination.
Following the success of the RE-CODE London similar programmes are under way in China, Czech Republic, Hungary, Mexico and the United States.
