Many of our grantees record aspects of their work on video and these video links provide some vivid insights into that work.  Links to a selection of these videos are listed below.  

The Science & Engineering Education Research and Innovation Hub (SEERIH), based at the University of Manchester

(The SEERIH website provides access to a comprehensive selection)

What is SEERIH? What do they do?

Developing practice in primary engineering – SEERIH’s approach

Influencing STEM Education Policy

The Great Science Share – Public and School Engagement Celebration

Across the Divide – Influencing teaching and learning across primary, secondary and HE

Aspects of the work of the North West Comino Consortium (NWCC)

The Digital Designer in Residence Project in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University

Speaking for ourselves – a collaborative cross-school project in NWCC

What’s the point? – learning about political engagement just before the 2015 general election in NWCC

Code and Create – digital designing at Corelli College

The Foundation supported this work at Corelli College, the first London Co-operative Academy.  In partnership with David Holloway, previously Chief Executive of the Ideas Foundation, this project explored potential uses of digital technology in designing and making in schools. 


With Foundation support, Fixperts are finding ways of using their approach in schools.  These videos show vividly how when designers focus on the needs of individual users creative problem-solving skills are unlocked and innovative solutions found.

Maker Assembly

The FutureMakers event organised by the RSA June 2013

The Maker Assembly’s first meeting, at the Victoria and Albert Museum in October 2015

Subsequent Maker Assemblies have since been held in Belfast; Sheffield and Manchester with an Edinburgh Assembly planned.

Crafts Council

With Foundation support the Crafts Council is seeking to give 10,000 young people the chance to learn craft skills in school.  The video shows how their Make the Future project is driving this project.


Future Makespaces in Redistributed Manufacturing is a two-year research project funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and run from the Royal College of Art, London, exploring the role of Makespaces in redistributed manufacturing.

Through its support of the Maker Assembly, the Comino Foundation has been helping UK Makespaces to strengthen their network.  The video explores the role of makespaces.

The Centre for Real World Learning

Prof Bill Lucas reviews the pedagogy of apprenticeships and highlights how we could develop a world class apprenticeship system in England by putting learning back at their heart.
