Design Jam (Natter Academy Event)

Join us as we kick-off our academy events with Natter. Teaching children all about digital design. We’ll be joined by design professionals from across Manchester as we explore design thinking!

Is your child creative or interested in design? This is the perfect place for them to be inspired and grow their curiosity. Come along as we delve into problem solving and walk through the design process looking at the key stages of design – defining the problem, empathising with users, ideating, prototyping and testing.

Got an idea? Bring it with you – or come and solve one of our design challenges!


Who is it for?
The design workshop is aimed at anyone interested in learning more about design, for ages between 8-15 year old.


What will you learn?
You’ll learn how to tackle a design problem and sketch and prototype an app! Including teamwork and collaboration with others.


What to expect?
A fun few hours of post-its, drawing, ideas and prototyping.We’ll also answer any questions you have about careers in design and the tools we use in our day-to-day.


If you’re a design professional and would like to help, please register with a volunteer ticket. Any parents/guardians and children who would like to attend, please register with a parent/guardian and child tickets.


Children must be accompanied by an adult during the event.


During the event we’ll be taking photos and filming, please inform a volunteer if you or your children would prefer not to be photographed or filmed.


We look forward to designing with you on the 18th!
