That was Digital ACE 2017

The Makerspace team had a fab time at the Digital ACE event last weekend.  A remarkable number of people crowded the Beau Sejour Concourse — estimated to be around 2,500.  We enjoyed lots of very interesting conversations with people intrigued by this ‘makerspace’ thing and what we’re up to.

Alongside a couple of 3D printers and our ‘Screen Totem™’ we introduced our prototype robots that we’re developing for a upcoming Robot Games challenge.  We are in the process of putting together kits of standard parts — including everything from radio control systems to motors and wood — that can be used to build robots that can compete in a range of challenges.  Keep an eye on our website — or indeed join our mailing list — for updates of our progress and launch.

Thanks to the organisers of the event which aims to inspire people, particularly children, to use the internet to it’s fullest potential and to do so safely.
