On September 24th, BEE Creative was present at the KniwwelFest in Rosport’s Tudor museum to show off some maker activities. BASE1 (SNJ), cre8 (LTEsch) and maach3 (LTEttelbruck) were there to give youngsters the opportunity to do some cool projects.
During a one trimester session, students at Lycée Technique d’Ettelbruck (8STP2) modified an old donated arcade into a modern retro gaming console featuring over 200 games. The woodwork was done by themselves after modelling the cases in cardboard. The arcade is featured at LTEttelbruck’s events during the year.
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 :
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!
