CANCELLED: Research Bazaar: Makerspace in 2 parts - micro:bit and maker competition

The workshop is cancelled due to illness. We apologise for the inconvenience. 

 

A makerspace is a place, a space, a room where we as individuals come together and create something. Creativity and collaboration are keywords in a makerspace.

Please note! The Research Bazaar makerspace will consist of two parts, if you want to join both events please register for them separately in the registration form.


Part 1 - Micro:bit workshop

Place: Vilhelm Bjerknes House Auditorium 2
Time: 10:00 - 12:00

The BBC micro:bit is a little computer originally made for kids. It was given to 5th graders in the UK as a platform to learn coding. The really cool thing with this computer is that it is easy to program (either with Python or a visual block programming language) and it is easy to connect to the world with sensors, motors and other electronics.

Learn how the micro:bit works and how to program it.

Requirements: Basic knowledge of electrical circuits is recommended. Programming experience and other skills are not required.

Target audience: graduate students and researchers


Part 2 - Make a machine that can move 2 meters - build-off and competition

Place: VB foyer

Time: 13:00 - 15:00 - competition 15:30 to 16:00

Friday after the main programme we will host a little build-off and competition. 

You get:

  • Assorted supplies
  • One pair of scissors
  • 2 hours build time

Use creativity, collaboration and good ideas and make a contraption that can move 2 meters. All entries will be judged by a jury and the winners will be announced at the pub event.

Requirements: Programming experience and other skills are not required.

Target audience: Graduate students and researchers. Teams will be made on the spot, make sure to bring your friends!
