Maiden make and your first flight. 2nd edition

29th november 2014

This workshop aims to bring children closer to the “do it yourself” philosophy by building model aeroplanes with digital fabrication techniques and experimental electronics at fabLAB Asturias.

In addition to learning about electronics, mechanics, aerodynamics and digital fabrication, the aim is to bring participants closer to a “make/use/repair/use” model of consumption as opposed to the current “buy/use/throw away”.

Participation in this workshop includes a kit with model aeroplane parts.
