MakerDojo is a hardware focused club encouraging the general public to explore science and technology in hands-on "hacker" style workshops inspired by the growing Maker movement, a worldwide community of hobbyists, students and enthusiasts who take a creative, DIY approach to technology, science and engineering.
MakerDojo fosters experimentation, collaboration and innovation and aims towards a culture of inventors.
Our next event is "Looking at Colorimeters" at 6:30pm Thursday April 5th in Tyndall National Institute!
A colorimeter used reflected or directed light from discreet parts of the spectrum to determine concentrations of a substance.
It can be used in medicine, or using Beer's Law to determine the proportion of a substance in a a set of equal concentrations, like the amount of cocoa in a chocolate bar.
I'll have the links up shortly!
We're also planning to go on tour this year. So, if you would like to have a MakerDojo near you, get in contact!
If you would like to make your own MakerDojo session, well, there's a guide to setting up your own MakerDojo.
Is there something that you would like to do, or get made?
Do you have a favourite workshop from earlier... or do you want something new?
We're open to ideas and trying things out... So...
Do you have any ideas for projects to share? Something you really want to see getting made?
Email us, or contact us on Twitter, or drop in a message to the Tyndall National Institute.
Looking forward to hearing from you...
