Maker Apprentice

The Apprentice project aims to offer a complete innovation space for young people. As an apprentice at RISE Interactive (formerly called Interactive Institute) 12-16 year olds get the opportunity to design, develop and explore interaction design, technology, code and maker culture, whilst at the same time contributing to ongoing projects at the institute within these fields. At RISE Interactive we believe that our innovation practices are strenthened through the broadening of perspectives in our design processes. Having the opportunity to engage in research and exploration side by side with our apprentices is one part of this work.

During their apprenticeship the four young talents who were recruited took part in various projects. They got to explore amongst other things; creative technologies,  projects methology, design methology and broader aspects on why we innovate for a better society.
