On 21 and 22 December 2015 we organised a Make-a-thon for kids of 11 to 14 years old in Fablab Erpe-Mere. In these 2 days, they learned how to build and program Arduino-based electronics, how to design in Inkscape and how to lasercut parts. In the end, they all had to build and customise their own robot arm, based on the MeArm.
Last week, after finishing up the latest technological advances that we embedded onto our STEAMachine, we drove all the way from Aalst, Belgium via the Eurotunnel to London to exhibit at the BETT Show. As this was already quite an experience, we would love to share the rest of our journey with you.
Het Circalab is een heus digitaal laboratium waar gezinnen met kinderen volop kan experimenteren met nieuwe media. Je vindt er interactieve installaties die zich op het kruispunt tussen kunst, media, technologie en wetenschap bevinden.
