Event description

Description

Shine a light upon science...

A colorimeter is an unusual sounding beast. It measures the reflected light off a chemical to determine its properties. Similar to a spectrophotometer, but it deals with discreet colours.

Working in the visible spectrum it can work on Beers Law to determine how much of a concentration is in a sample. Also it might be really important in the future of surgery.

But what if you can make one using an Arduino, chocolates and some inexpensive components?

MakerDojo is a 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.

We hope to give you practical experience of STEM areas and the opportunity to become confident inventors, experimenters and creators.

The event is aimed for adults down to Transition Year students (think 16 and older), however younger people are encouraged attend as part of a family group. For legal reasons, a parent or guardian must remain in attendance if their ward is 15 years old or younger.

MakerDojo is made possible thanks to Science Foundation Ireland. #believeinscience
