My role: designer and front-end developer on behalf of Waag Society

The project, FabSchool, invites young makers in Amsterdam to participate in workshops to develop the creative problem-solving skills of the future. Children in the Amsterdam area can sign up for an after-school course at Waag Society's fablab to learn about basic electronics, coding, and other methods of hands-on learning. was an attempt to provide Dutch children outside Amsterdam with access to information about maker culture in their own language.

This was my very first project as an intern at Waag Society in 2014. It was also my first attempt at building a WordPress theme. I was very proud at the time ;)
