Year of Engineering

Welcome to The Holiday Makers

This summer, we’re encouraging children across the country to get making, inventing and having fun over the holidays.

The Holiday Makers is a brand new hub packed with fun activities and challenges that will help to entertain and inspire your children, keeping their minds sharp all summer long.

From weekly one-of-a-kind challenges and prizes from partners like the Science Museum and the RAF, to activities and events, The Holiday Makers has everything your kids need to engineer the perfect summer.

Let’s get making!

Your holiday journal

The holiday journal is the perfect way to record your child’s Holiday Makers progress.

At the end of each challenge, activity or event you will be able to claim a digital badge, making it easier to share progress with family and friends. After claiming your badge, you will receive an email with details on how to set up your digital holiday journal.

You can also download a printable version here to keep track of all the cool things they do this summer.
