Promoting the growth of a digital economy, the MDEC Future Innovators' School Makerspace opened its doors to Malaysians to explore the wonderful world of innovative technology. The MDEC Future Innovators' School is a conducive environment for generating ideas, organising programmes to spur tech talent, and a platform to recruit young innovators to budding network opportunities.

This programme aims to design and produce a layout of a creative and innovative digital makerspace for MDEC, conceptualizing the arrangement of captivating labs to stimulate innovation. The programme's services also included identifying the suppliers for the lab's apparatuses and recommend the best technological tools and equipment for the school, not limited to the essentials - hardware, software, internet connection. To provide weekly progress reports to the client, a dedicated on-site project manager was assigned to work hand-in-hand with the contractors in setting up the digital makerspace, including overseeing the space renovation and furnishing, ICT infrastructure set-up, and such.
