The MESH (Makers Education Social Hack) program is a SokoTech initiative aimed at trainers who work with youth in programs for social inclusion. It seeks to launch a scalable experience for libraries, athenaeums, civic centers, schools and other public or private facilities. The program consists of online training and universal access based on the Maker philosophy and open source ethical tools. From digital manufacturing and rapid prototyping, it seeks to generate emancipatory learning environments for young people. Each of the following knowledge capsules has been developed by referents in Maker education and social inclusion.

For MESH we’ve developed the concept and graphic image. Our starting point was the co-creation concept, for which we have created an illustration that serves as a central axis to exemplify it. An illustration that is capable of being transformed thanks to the nodes that compose it. These nodes are the representation of each of the project participants, different and unique, who by sharing their knowledge, create a solid network of exchange, growth and constant evolution. A hack to the traditional educational system.
