Event description

Description

You should play with your food. The idea for STEM crackers came up in a bar after the March for Science. Namely, what is the simplest make, (which will come up at the session) and I said “that’s better than most toys in a Christmas Cracker…

And could you build a set of STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) kits in a packet of Christmas Crackers? Let’s find out.

Be warned, with these experiments and demonstrations, you’ll be encouraged to play with your food!

Please note, we’re not selling the sets, but giving you full instructions on how to make your own and improve a set of shop bought crackers to play with at the dinner table.

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
