We're back to celebrate Arduino Day and all types of digital making. Join us for an open day with workshops, talks and amazing demos around DIY electronics. We're partnering up with our friends at Machines Room who have a fantastic maker space in east London.
Open day from 2 to 5pm:
> Workshops (wearable and sewable circuit, Arduino 101, robotics for kids...)
> Plenty of interactive projects demos to play with (robots, DIY instruments...)
> "Hardware Jam" - bring your projects & get support (beginners welcome)
Who is it for?
Families, hobbyists, artists, designers and anyone interested in having fun with digital making.
What do I need to bring?
Nothing! Come and discover the projects and activities. But if you have your own projects bring them with you to showcase them or for support, it doesn't have to be arduino-based. If you want to take part in the coding workshops please bring a laptop with you.
Workshops for all (children must be accompanied by an adult)
> Arduino 101 by James Cadman & Robert Johnson (drop-in)
> Wearable and sewable circuit workshop by Lily Madar at 2 and 3.30pm (sold out)
> Learn electronics using Littlebits by Fabrizio D'Amico & Carlos Izsak (drop-in)
> Robots for kids: Build and play with mbot Robot! at 2.30pm
