You bring your lunch, we provide tea & coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.


If you thought 3D printing was some sort of futuristic sci-fi technology that would never catch on, think again. I Can Make is a group that produces kits to help teachers, parents and children understand all about 3D printing. Chris Thorpe, I can make’s technology spoke about how the group hopes to help inspire the current school generation to become the engineers, inventors and manufacturers of the future.

Chris is a technologist who makes things with code, APIs and now 3D printing. He was once the CTO of Moshi Monsters, the pet monster game that makes parents’ evenings awkward.
