Technology can be taken apart and put back together in unexpected ways. During this hands-on workshop Anja, Heerko, James & Selby (of Hackers & Designers) will show you what is going on inside a toy car, how to hack the remote control and make the car follow a line independently! We will work in smaller groups, with sensors, arduinos and soldering irons.

In the last few years, several interesting smart citizen projects have seen the light. Waag has been following these developments closely and has been partnering with Fab Lab Barcelona, for instance, in the implementation of the Smart Citizen Kit. This Arduino-based connector platform has made it easier to connect new sensors to the Internet in order to create more transparency for citizens about the quality of their environment.

Fabschoolino

Waag developed the Fabschoolino, a mini-computer you could solder together and program yourself.

On September 14, Waag together with CodeUur starts the first programming course for primary school teachers.

 

Project
In two primary schools in The Netherlands we examined semi-plug 'n play materials that you can put to use in the classroom. Such materials contribute to knowledge construction rather than just knowledge transfer.

 

Event
In May and June 2015 we are organising an follow-up course for participants of our earlier editions of FabSchool Kids.

During the FabSchool Kids workshops, the young participants discover a world of 3D printers, programming, and advanced graphic design applications. Four of these workshops have already taken place, so the kids are now busy building and designing their own inventions.

 

Article
The children that joined our FabSchool Kids centre series started right away with soldering their own mini computer: the Diavolino, a DIY kit by Mad Evil Scientist and a fantastic open-source hardware and software project.

 

Event
Two teams will build their own OpenKnit Machine with the help of Gerard Rubio, the developer of this open-source fabrication tool. He will demonstrate how to build the machine step-by-step. Do you want to make your own scarf or beanie? You can do that, too! During the workshop there will be a fully functioning OpenKnit Machine already assembled, so everyone can experiment with the software from the beginning.
