Making in Art – 13th February 2016

We would like to thank everyone who have taken their time off to attend the Making in Art workshop at Science Centre. The importance of the workshop was to promote parent and child bonding while at the same time allowing participants to engage in multiple hands-on activities teaching them about Science, Art and Technology, and we were glad to notice that the children were enjoying themselves with the activities along with their family.

Here are some photos during the workshop.

Here is a video that you can see.

For those who have missed the workshop, here are some activities that were conducted during the workshop which you can try.

Paper Circuits: There are many creative ways in which you can play around with circuits. Here is one http://www.sciencebuddies.org/blog/2015/04/creative-circuits-with-copper-tape.php

Soldering: Soldering may seem daunting to a beginner, but young kids can handle a soldering iron. Try your hand at PCB design Easy, EDA.

String Art: String art may be tedious as the cuts required have to be symmetrically aligned, however, it is a good way to integrate art with Mathematics. It is also a great way to improve patience and fine motor skills.  Here is a video tutorial in which you can start from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-diObeiBeQ

Conductive Silicone: Andrew Quitmeyer has shared his tutorial on conductive silicone! Gives breadboarding a completely different view. Here is the link for reference http://hackaday.com/2016/01/07/conductive-silicone-makes-flexible-circuits/

You can also check out Makezine and Instructables as it offers great ideas on projects that you can make at home.

We hope you can join us at our next workshop on the 9th of April going with the theme Making Toys and Games. This would be a great time to look at homemade and self made toys, everything from low tech “Kampung style” toys to robotic toys. You can register at https://www.regonline.sg/2016workshop2
