Meet our Magnificent Makers
Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.
By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.
We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.Do you make things?
Join the fun!
I design stuff for people to make and sell to other people!
Working with Octo Design, I’ve created products for lots of very different companies.
I'm a product designer with a keen interest in the creative process. That means I’m often involved in projects from day one, helping to shape those initial seeds of ideas through to something compelling.
I'm also a mechanical engineer who likes to make things. That helps me work out how things will work and how we can make them a reality!
My main skill is 3D animation, but I am starting to tinker with programming and electronics to bring my own inventions into the real world. I love to spend my time making things and learning new techniques to make things!
I started animating in 2D, working on motion graphics. After 3 years I decided to pick up 3D modelling and have since learnt to rig, animate and render for 3D animations.
I’m continuing to challenge myself with new styles of design and animation.
I run a makerspace called Machines Room and i'm Chief Maker at Little Inventors!
I studied art, and love design. I do lots of DIY, fixing and helping others make things.
Open Lab is the interaction design research group based in the School of Computing at Newcastle University.
We have a huge amount of experience working with partners from the NHS to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies - helping them solve real-world-problems using technology.
We have built apps, designed toolkits, created AI, designed immersive storytelling. created interesting ways to collect feedback, made VR environments, built physical technologies, made data more accessible, and so much more.
We take a human centred-design approach meaning that we design technology with people in mind.
We are a group of men and women who get together primarilaly as social groups, who have access to a large workshop.
