ArtScience Prize UK - Derby students take the world by storm!

Watch the film to find out more about Derby young people’s experience in the ArtScience Prize! The UK ArtScience Prize is a programme through which students develop innovative art and design ideas informed by concepts at the frontiers of modern science. Over the course of fifteen weeks in early 2013, student teams were mentored by artists and scientists and guided through the ArtScience Prize Ideas Translation process. Part of a worldwide network of ArtScience Prize sites, the UK pilot enabled teams of young people from Derby and South East London to join the International Innovation Workshop in Paris at Le Laboratoire in June 2013. Derby Museums has led the development of the ASP programme in Derby in partnership with Ignite Futures. This year’s programme has just started. If you are interested in finding out more about how you or your organisation could get involved - get in touch by emailing andream@derbymuseums.org

Derby Mini Maker Faire 2013 was a huge success! Over 1200 people came along to see projects, share making ideas and get hands on with painting, knitting, soldering, rope making, science experiments, furniture building and more! http://makerfairederby.com/

Moving on from last weeks half scale workshops #remakemuseum participants have a go at full scale making. 

Groups were asked to pick a product, create a rough design as well as thinking about how it used and where it would work in the space. Using a range of materials including card, wood, foam and plastic the sketches were made into rough prototypes.
