Last Sunday we exhibited at the first Sydney Mini Maker Fair held at the Powerhouse Museum.
We were blown away by the popularity of the faire. Over 3000 people visited more than 50 exhibits, from robots to rockets to 3D printing and of course lots of Raspberry Pi, Arduino and other maker electronic projects.
We were there to exhibit BitScope Ed and seek feedback from visitors, teachers and other exhibitors about the idea of combining programming, electronics and BitScope.
We wanted to know if others agree that an education in electronics and programming can be very engaging and a lot of fun with low cost systems like Raspberry Pi or Arduino, some electronic components, prototyping boards and BitScope.
It seems they do! We received lots of positive feedback and suggestions about BitScope Ed, especially in the context of using Raspberry Pi for programming and Arduino for building interractive and educational electronic projects. We'll blog more on this in future posts as we follow up with a range of companies and individuals who approached us with ideas for collaboration in some new educational projects.
For now, here are some photos to give you a overview of the day:
This is a tiny selection of the exhibits that were on show on the day. Visit the maker faire website to learn more about other exhibitors. We'd like to extend our thanks and congratulations to the Powerhouse Museum and ThinkSpace for hosting this amazing event. We look forward to seeing what is on offer next year!
