Earning OBA Maker badges at YCF16

Creating LED badges with conductive thread at the festival

At this year's Young Carers Festival we showcased DigitalMe's new platform: Open Badge Academy.

As many of you know, you can already earn open badges on Makewaves, but Open Badge Academy is a new platform designed for young people 13+ to use as a professional portfolio, and a space to earn and display their badges. The badge library on OBA focusses on skills that will help you to progress in life, including badge schemes on employability and digital skills.

At the festival we ran workshops making LED badges, using conductive thread to create a circuit! The young people who took part have earned the OBA Makers Showcase badge for completing the activity, which you can earn by sharing anything you have made using technology.
