Again, brigk Makerspace has thought of a slightly different holiday program for adult makers and their children this year. There was definitely something for everyone in the nine workshops.
Gestartet hat das Ferienprogramm mit dem restlos ausverkauften Wordclock Workshop, der – ohne viel vorwegzunehmen – wie die fThe holiday program started with the completely sold out Wordclock workshop, which – without anticipating much – was a complete success, like the following workshops. The participants received a complete kit – developed by our workshop leader themselves, in order to build their own word clock under supervision. By the way, there was also interesting background knowledge about programming or laser cutting. Due to the positive feedback and the great demand, there will be more courses this year. We will announce the exact dates on our social networks!
The entry-level MSG welding was anything but boredom: From materials to accident prevention regulations and device settings to actual welding, the participants were able to learn the basics of gas-shielded metal welding.
In our free Adobe Illustrator – Vector Graphics for Makers course, which took place in the brigk as an exception, the participants were introduced to the world of vector graphics. This also includes how they are created with Adobe Illustrator and can then be used for various machines (e.g. milling machines, laser cutters, plotters).
Cut with light? It works! In our laser cutting introductory course, the participants learned how a laser cutter works, which materials are suitable for cutting and engraving and how a graphic can be turned into a finished object! At the end, everyone was allowed to cut their first little project and take it home as a souvenir.
The beginner’s soldering course took place in cooperation with FabLab Ingolstadt e.V.. All necessary materials and tools are provided. In addition, this course was also for teenagers aged 14 and over. The aim of the workshop was to build your own electronic mini organ to jingle – which you could of course take home with you.
In our Shaper Origin introductory course, the participants got to know the Shaper Origin and its entire range of functions, including tips and tricks for handling and the first milling. The Shaper Origin looks like a router. But it is much more: thanks to intelligent technology, any shape can be milled in CNC quality!
The beginner course Arduino – learn the basics and get started! Contained everything you need to know about microcontrollers, the basic functions of an Arduino and the basics of the C / C ++ programming language. An Arduino starter kit was also included with every ticket.
For fans of 3D printing, there was the introductory course on 3D printing. In the workshop, the participants were brought closer to the basics of 3D printing technology.
On the first weekend in September, the holiday program came to an end with Build your own drone. On two consecutive days, the participants were able to build their own FPV Race Drone using the workshop leader’s self-developed kit. They received valuable background knowledge as well as tips & tricks about drones. Finally, everyone could fly their self-made drone.
The extensive possibilities of Makerspace made it possible to put together a colorful holiday program with something for everyone, from theoretical content to vector graphics and soldering to laser cutting. The brigk Makerspace would like to thank all the makers for their participation and the consistently positive feedback.
