Global Education & environmental challenges are at a critical point!
We are determined to protect the planet from degradation and want to promote sustainable energy consumption and production: in a way that harnesses natural resources, takes urgent action and supports the needs of the present and future generations.
“Living sustainably requires a huge shift in mindset.
Education has to be a part of that change”.
“It’s time to inspire the next generation of makers”.
YooMeYoo’s energy education development project is dedicated to promoting an energy-conscious society by building effective networks of students, educators, businesses, and community leaders to design and implement education programs.
YooMeYoo’s aim is to build and develop a ‘Makerspace’, with the intention of:
- Becoming an active participant in the energy transition to the Smart Grid
- Developing an energy, sustainability, and Smart Grid-focused interactive space
- Creating an exceptional teaching experience: to develop information exchange between children and artisans
- Encouraging everyone with an interest in ‘Maker’ technologies to get more involved
YooMeYoo’s mission is inspire children to take an active interest in energy and technology, to encourage them to use it responsibly throughout their lives. The purpose of the factory space is to education them in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects in a positive way by helping them to develop practical knowledge in a safe and responsible environment.
Who is the factory for?
The project is designed to bridge a societal gap, and to bring makers, innovators, and curious young minds together/
Our primary audience are schools (6-18 years old), youth centers, children’s charities and non-profit associations. We want to create a dedicated creative, educational space where children can learn autonomously and experiment with energy-focused maker technology; in a safe, proactive environment.
To do this, we first need to build a maker community; which is why we’re committed to building a versatile space where they can access tools, workshops, and private areas. We see makers as:
- Autonomous educators: the link between children and the factory.
- Able to offer experience and expertise.
- Key participants in the Research & Development of Smart Grid modules.
