Seeking Donations of your junk

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018
We are conducting workshops with primary school children where we will be using old toys and discarded electronics. The children will be taught how to use tools and then they will have fun pulling apart the toys & electronics, in the meantime learning a lot about the use of tools, electronics, materials and how things are made. We need lots of things to pull apart. Please check your cupboards for any dusty electronics, toys that are no longer being used, things that you’re about to throw out. These all have great value for our workshops.
Also any old tools that you can spare would also be greatly appreciated, screwdrivers and pliers in particular.
Please reply to this post organise delivery and/or pick up.
Any contribution, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.
Thank You
Greg Giannis

A very interesting post on how young people can be engaged in civic participation through maker spaces.

Making Techne, Techne in the Making

Professor Jackie Marsh, leader of the Makey Project has kindly offered to fund my attendance at their 2019 conference. Very excited 🙂
