Hey Nat, what a great idea of bringing the maker space into a hospital! For children that are subjected to some childhood illnesses can see them having such long stays in hospital, they would have ideas and concepts of what things they could make to make their journey easier. I guess also it would be a good distraction for them too. Children who are hospitalised seem to carry the identity of being ‘the sick kid’ but as you said, they can be the agents of change and this concept could emotionally pull a child out of their bed. Nice post 🙂
