A few days after the yarnbombing event, we held a Mini Maker Faire Workshop for Secondary School Students conducted by Kiruthika, our lead organiser for the Singapore Mini Maker Faire. The workshop took place on 28 May afternoon at Science Centre Singapore.
Students from various schools came together and learnt how to make paper circuits and how to turn a laser pointer into a microscope. Sounds fun?
Here are some photos taken during the workshop!
