Our next meetup is Sunday 28th July. I shall be running a small workshop on how to use Neopixels and how to write code to control them using the Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
We are a group of creative technologists that meet every 2-3 weeks on a Sunday between 11am and 5pm for a general social and making session. Everyone is welcome to bring something down and work on it and share and get involved with members projects or to simply see what we are up to. There is no fee to join or attend any session.
Medway Makers is a place for creative people to get together to make things, learn new skills, make new friends, socialise, talk about ideas, watch people build things and generally be creative.
We have workshops in building cool things with Arduino and Raspberry Pi, learn about electronics, how to code for beginners, writing computer games for an Arduboy or other devices, designing in 3D CAD programs, 3D Printing, how to use a Raspberry Pi and so on. We have also done woodworking, making terrariums, painting and other creative activities.
Complete beginners welcome. No prior knowledge, skills or equipment is needed. Just bring yourself and your curious mind. We can provide laptops and equipment if you don’t have your own.
The best thing about all of this : IT’S FREE !!!
Medway Makers does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or posts. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all our members and expect all members to do the same.
