Technology Will Save Us Make-A-Thon @LimeWharf
We are starting Design Week off with a special, all day make-a-thon in collaboration with New York based LittleBits. 15 other make-a-thons will be taking place across the world that we will Skype with on the day and share inventions, skills and approaches to making.
For one day, we are inviting our community, the design community, families and Maker communities at large to participate in making interactive, sonic, robotic and design based projects with Technology Will Save Us kits and LittleBits electronic ‘Legos’. The day will be a hands on day of learning, making and inventing using technology and design. The make-a-thons will be comprised of three consecutive workshops and discussions which will happen throughout the day. Participants can come for an hour or stay for the whole day and have a ‘makers lunch’ and with our experts:
11-1pm DIY Electro-Dough workshop – A fun and easy workshop using electronic Play Dough, lights, motors, switches and creativity!
2-4pm DIY Mini Synth workshop – A simple soldering workshop that teaches you how to make your own synthesizer to create electronic music and beats.
2-6pm Littlebits workshop – Be the first to try the color-coded “Bits” that snap together magnetically to make it easy to build simple circuits and inventive projects in seconds — from flickering lanterns to piggy banks to light-sensitive cars.
The event is supported by and promoted with the Adhocracy exhibition at LimeWharf and the NYCEDC (NYC Economic Development Corporation).
