It started with just a handful of students who readily took up the hands-on challenge to build their own microscope by hacking a webcam.
In a short while, the two tables that were full of gadgets gradually drew attention, until a point that we can hardly view what was happening at Marc Dusseiller’s pop-up biotinkering space.
Wondered what else were done at the pop-up makerspace held at Science Centre Singapore on 13 Mar 2014?
Within the short 2 hours, the impromptu participants tried their hands at taking things apart, and putting them together again, and experimented with different items that they could view using their DIY microscope, including a live spider and a cotton stainer!
Lots of spontaneous efforts were also put in into ensure the live insects are viewable on the DIY microscope, amusing the crowd watching the demonstration.
Marc also brought along plenty of interesting gadgets which captured our attention.
Check out the two suitcases he brought his stuffs in! One of them is a “Lab in a suitcase” while the other contains stuffs that he made. Inspiring, isn’t it? Seems like some people will start packing their own maker suitcase/bag soon!
If you are looking forward to some tinkering and making, check out the next pop-up event on 22 March at Tampines Central Community Club.
