Maker Mash-up at the Vancouver Public Library (2014)

Wed, Jan 1, 2014

VIVO Young Makers Club teamed up withMaker Mobile and the DIY club at the Mount Pleasant branch of Vancouver Public Library to teach a class about building electronic gadgets. The 2 hour workshop, led by Andrew Milne and Simon Lyons of Maker Mobile  involved learning how to build a “brush bot” (A simple robot that uses a pager motor to move around), and a “trip wire” using a clothespin, string, tinfoil, and a battery-powered noisemaker. Andrew and Simon then set up a “Trip wire obstacle course” where students tried to navigate around the trip wire without making the buzzers activate.
