Katy Bristowe

I’m Katy and I run MakerClub in Bournemouth with 4 different groups of makers every week. I have a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering with a strong focus on 3D design and innovation. I have experience working with 3D printing both from University and within my career, and now work with afterschool clubs that aim to inspire the next generation of STEM students and makers. I think that MakerClub is such an amazing club and gives children access to all kinds of things that I didn’t have access to until I went to University, so it really gives them all a head start when thinking about what they might want to do in the future. My favourite projects have to be all things 3D Design and 3D Printing, I think its fantastic that you can go from designing something in one session to holding it and using it the next!
