Digital Maker Programme

last updated 13 April 2017

As Singapore embraces a digital economy, it presents us with new opportunities to leverage technology and media to transform the way we live, work and play.

Our people can grasp the opportunities that this new environment offers to be innovative, bold and willing to change, and build new capabilities. 

The Digital Maker Programme aims to nurture a new generation of digital natives, empowering our students and adults to be digital creators and makers, so as to cultivate real-world problem solving, encourage digital creativity and innovation, as well as foster collaboration and co-creation with fellow digital makers.  

The Digital Maker Programme aims to grow this culture through the introduction of simple-to-use and open-ended technologies that the baseline users will be comfortable using.  Over the next 2 years, the programme will introduce making and creating with technology using an entry-level codable microcontroller known as the micro:bit to inspire students and adults to explore the possibilities of digital making.

The Programme will reach out to help as many people with digital making skills as possible, and will therefore make the micro:bits and workshops accessible through the following strategies:

  • Strategy 1 : Introducing Digital Maker Technology to Schools;
  • Strategy 2 : Building Communities of Digital Makers;
  • Strategy 3 : Spur local companies to develop and market maker-centred products.
