Since April 21 2015, the SCRIPT together with SNJ launched the BEE Creative project, whose objective it is to empower students with new technologies. The main idea is based on the concept developed by maach3’s creator, Marc TEUSCH, and the LTEttelbruck‘s approach to innovative educational philosophy.
In a near future, schools will be able to create their own makerspace or profit from an existing one in their neighborhood. The space itself will provide several possibilities of interactions :
- regular workshops at all levels
- weekly meetups for interest groups or socializing
Based on the concept of hackerspaces, the makerspaces will carry a large infrastructure which all students can profit from. The space activities and workshops will always be under the guidance of a pedagogue who will ensure the quality of the ongoing activity.
Interested? The join us for your first activity or a discussion. More coming soon to our schedule section!
We’re very proud that our RetroPi project from last year is featured in CHIP magazine’s special edition of Raspberry Pi (Das ultimative Raspberry Pi Handbuch, page 48)!
This weekend, hack4kids.lu will take place in our home school, the LTEttelbruck. There are still some spaces left, so register here : hack4kids.lu
Hack4Kids is an event which brings bleeding edge technology closer to kids from 9 to 12 years. There will be programming introductions, cyphering messages, designing 3D items for printing, dark rooms where awesome photos emerge and even more. Join us there!
So, here’s a simple DIY project I designed so that you can easily create you own XMas tree light decoration. Feel free to use this circuit to design your own hardware to integrate the LEDs or use it as a sparkling gift box. Please make sure that when soldering, you use all necessary precautions!
Send us pix of your creations!
Use this link to get access to the circuit : XLEDs v0.3
Since 11:00 today, the makerspace project is officially started!
We’re now in the final steps in planning and reorganising our space location at the Lycée Technique d’Ettelbruck so that our first public workshops will starting very soon! Make sure you catch us on twitter (@maach_3) for further updates!
