On 17th September, we had a workshop with Commonwealth Secondary School. With Makers Bernice Lau (Remember the fishbone sculptures (Tsurus) at Maker Faire? ) and Din Chan (The awesome light painting that was inside the Cardboard Teddy bear?), we worked with the students to hack junk and unused toys (think broken beyond repair toys and centuries old floppy discs) to make moodlamps
In the beginning, students were kind of unsure on what to do with the items they had picked. With lots of enthusiasm and eagerness in them, they tried to discover and figure out what they can do with the junk pile.
So some students decided to dismantle the floppy disk and take the parts out to make some movable robot.
Eventually, what the students came up with were pretty amazing!
THanks to Bernice and Din for facilitating this session 🙂
