On Saturday 18th February as a part of Stockport Digifest Make Stuff invites you to get to grips with coding, take an introduction to the world of making, and explore some of Manchester’s best home-grown creative tech.
Soldering: Hone your soldering skills with MAKE STUFF’s LED-tastic skill badge kit
Arduino: Learn the Arduino basics, and how to apply it in creative contexts
3D Printing: Explore the possibilities of 3D printing, and 3D scan your head (or other appendages) - including 3D printed hats at the Hat Works!
Wearable Tech: Create sewn-circuits using conductive thread (and more LEDs)
Minecraft: Learn to code while exploring the Minecraft realm
GameCraft: Get crafty and create your own computer games characters
Train Ticket Origami: Harness the power of maths to create origami creatures with the contents of your pocket
Brushbots Create your own art-making robot!
DIY Touchscreen Gloves: Learn about touch screen technology and convert your own gloves
Plus check out projects and prototypes developed at MadLab, like Gemma May Latham’s PatternCraft - an analogue-to-digital punchcard reader and a base for developing interactive projects, and Chris Ball’s Laser Harp - an Arduino-based MIDI laser harp that uses low-power lasers.
Special guests will include Manchester Girl Geeks, Stockport Coder Dojo and CodeUp!
Entry is FREE and all activities are drop-in at both locations, so just stop by!
