We're taking over Station Hall* for one day to share all the stuff we love - which is everything to do with making!

We'll have a bunch of show & tells, including:

- Guitar tuner for the blind, and other assistive tech

- walking robots, and small drones demos

- CyDash: a modular bike computing platform - see it here first!

Short hands-on workshops:

- learn to solder - make a blinky LED badge, with an advanced SMD soldering option for the more experienced!

- DIY solar power demoes/taster session, and off-grid electricity: demystifying renewables

- Getting started with microcontrollers: using simple code and controller boards to 'make things do things' with Arduino and RaspPi Boards
