CELS (Craigieburn) Makerspace

Filed under: CELS,Maker spaces — Greg @ 11:26 am

The work of the students at Craigieburn continues to be inspiring, creative and energetic. This week produced some interesting variations on previous work, a new direction and a safety issue that needs reiterating.

broken glass!!!!

We need to be very careful with many items in the junk makerspace. One of these is glass and this can be found in many consumer items such as mobile phones. Smashing glass does not help us to learn and creates a very dangerous and unsafe work space.

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.
