Based in a converted warehouse in Falmouth, Cornwall at the southwest tip of the UK, FoAM Kernow is a non-profit organisation inhabiting the spaces between society, research, education and policy.
We enable people to develop creative and confident relationships with science and technology, merging our experience in science, programming, arts and design in a broad range of transdisciplinary research and education projects.
Our projects range from creating games to invite people to help scientific research or explore issues surrounding online privacy and political change, to providing scientists with exciting ways to reach out and talk to people, giving local primary school children and teenagers new ways to learn programming and developing experimental projects with Aphex Twin.
FoAM Kernow's work has been featured on BBC Radio 6 Music, The Economist, BBC's Click programme, The Guardian and Thinking Digital and has won the Soil Association's innovation award 2014 and the 2011 VIDA award. We have written for The Guardian and The Conversation on the rapid changes happening in research and education, and are committed to fostering a culture of free software, creative commons and open access through our work.
