Grote Maakplaats weekend

Learning by making can be experienced at every OBA public library 'Maakplaats' 021. Every visitor, young and old, can become a creator themselves by designing, creating and discovering with the help of the latest technology. Such as the 3D printer and vinyl cutter, but also with smart robots and mini-computers.

In the weekend of 9 and 10 February, the Big Maakplaats weekend took place on the youth floor in the Central OBA Oosterdok. As a partner in the Maakplaats 021 project, Waag organized a number of busy workshops during the weekend, from artbots to a race against the self-driving car.
