Makeistan

From 2015 to 2016 I helped to start Makeistan, Pakistans first Makerspace. It is based out of the Information Technology University in Lahore.

While creating access to space and tools for designers, engineers and entrepreneurs to work on technologies, the main focus of Makeistan is education. As such my biggest responsibilities was the development and delivery of design- as well as technological curriculum, focussing on electronics and creative coding. This included almost daily shorter classes as well as a 3-week intense course at a design university, teaching the use of electronics in prototyping to design students and a 12-week long introduction to electronics for children. My work also included training other trainers and assisting them in the development of high quality workshop materials.
