About Hive Manchester
What are we up to?
We are helping to create more digital making opportunities for young people in Greater Manchester. Digital making means events like code clubs and hackdays, where young people come together to learn and play – making apps, websites, robots, electronic circuits etc. They are mentored by friendly people who have tech skills they want to pass on.
Digital making can be really good fun, creative and fulfilling. It can also be an excellent way to learn how people in digital jobs actually work and learn.
The clue is in the name. Hive works through community and collaboration – organisations working together to swap skills and resources. We help each other set up events and activities, train each other in digital or youth work skills and come together to discuss how it’s going, what;s working and how to do things better.
