The Make: Learn: Share: Europe (MLSE) project is a project designed to develop digital making skills amongst young people across Europe, in order to assist with learning and enterprise development.

The project promotes the free flow of information, skills development and supporting content across a number of European Cities and Institutions by building upon and utilising the physical and intellectual infrastructure available from previous European funded programmes.

The successful consortium of ‘city’ partners is made up from: Riga, Latvia Gijon, Spain Ronneby, Sweden Rome, Italy Sheffield, United Kingdom (the co-ordinating partner )

The members of each regional consortium will feature representation from

Local Government Learning Institutions  Locally based businesses from the Creative and Digital Sector

The aspiration is to create a large scale student ambassador association (14-16 year olds) who will run training for others in schools or local settings.

This will be done by organising a series of Training events for young people organised by University Computer Science staff and others (which will be live webcast, recorded and made openly available). This training may include such things as: Coding, Mobile Phone Application (App) creation, 3D animation and Raspberry Pi development.

The learning materials connected to these sessions will be openly available and feature a mix of digital video content, written instruction and peer to peer support. These activities will be referred to as ‘Open School Units’.

Secondly, local sessions will then be held to train the student ambassadors and finally there will be a local programme of student ambassador delivery to targeted others within their locality. This could be younger children or identified adults.

Each regional consortium will agree to identify and support an agreed number of Computer Science Ambassadors, who will be trained by in digital making skills.

These young Ambassadors will then train other young people (MAKE:LEARN:SHARE).

The project will run for 36 months from November 2015 to October 2018.
