I've recently finished volunteering with Madlab at the Make Stuff events.
The events were free events around Greater Manchester, introducing people to various wonders, like 3D printing, coding and Wearable Technology.
I helped run the Wearable Technology workshop, which taught parents and children alike, about how to create a sewable circuit. Definitely a new experience but it was very rewarding.
It's likely that there will more Make Stuff events. You can check them out at: http://makestuff.madlab.org.uk/events/
