Event description

Description

(Oil)birds do it. Bats do it. Even educated self-parking cars to it. Echo locate obstacles and measure distance using sound.

We're going to take some ultrasonic sensors, and build a machine that can measure distance.

Then we're going to take that tool and turn it into a parking sensor.

Care to sound things out? Get your hands on the components and build something!

Note: This event will be recorded

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
