CELS (Craigieburn) Makerspace

Filed under: CELS,Maker spaces — Greg @ 4:33 pm

This year I am very excited to have the affiliated CELS schools running makerspaces as modelled at the Collingwood branch last year. The students have started the journey with introductions to safety, electricity and hygiene. Their initial challenges are to simply learn how to use tools appropriately and safely, in the process of dismantling objects. Some have already started thinking about making from the materials collected from the dismantling process.

Other students discovered that they could operate the salvaged motors with a few alligator leads and AA batteries.

CELS makerspace

Filed under: Maker spaces — Greg @ 2:18 pm

The students at CELS have been attending makerspace on a Monday afternoon for most of the year. Every student makes a unique contribution to the community. This makerspace is still mostly driven by the students own curiosity and our support. The materials we work with are mostly e-waste and other recycled ‘craft’ materials. We are fortunate to have a beautifully lit space and the support of exceptional teachers.
