About this event

Welcome to our Christmas social Meetup. Put the date in your diary.

ALL MEETUPS ARE NOW BEING HELD BOTH IN PERSON AND ONLINE.

Online joiners will be held using the Zoom app so please install that prior to the meeting. Invite links will be sent out in advance.

===============================================================

Medway Makers is an inclusive maker space for the Medway and surrounding communities. Our mission is to increase creativity in the Medway community and encourage people to get together to help each other out with their projects and learn new skills.

We meet every 3 weeks on a Sunday between 11am and 5pm for a general social and making session. Everyone is welcome to bring something down and work on it and share and get involved with members projects. There is no fee to attend any session. Everything is free and ran by volunteers.

We are a place for creative people to get together and do creative stuff in a social setting. Making ranges from electronics projects to jewelry making through to general crafts. We've made everything from robots to kites.

A lot of the time we are building cool stuff based around micro-controllers (Arduino) or Raspberry Pi's. Other times we make things out of wood or do stuff like terrariums and other crafty maker things.

Complete beginners welcome. No prior knowledge, skills or equipment is needed. Just bring yourself and your curious mind. We can provide laptops and equipment if you don't have your own.

Medway Makers does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or posts. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all our members and expect all members to do the same. Any person found to be acting in a discriminatory manner will be ejected from the group.

We aspire to bring Science & Technology, Art & Design, and Innovation & Industry into the same place.

We hope to bring new people into making, people who never made before. We believe that no matter how smart you are or are not you have the right to make something you can feel proud of and we hope to foster a culture of cooperation and fun where you can enjoy and develop your capabilities.

*In 2017 Medway Makers entered the international Pi Wars robotics competition at Cambridge University and we won 1st Place in our class. The robot was designed, built and coded entirely from scratch by members of Medway Makers. 

Complete beginners welcome. No prior knowledge, skills or equipment is needed. Just bring yourself and your curious mind. We can provide laptops and equipment if you don't have your own.
