Recent Highlights from 2017
Here is a taste of what we have been up to in the last few months!
Make Create Innovate at Dublin Maker
Make Create Innovate hosted ‘Electro Lab’ at DublinMaker 2017, packed with interactive entry-level activities facilitating hands-on experimentation with conductivity and robotics. Our stall generated all kinds of bizarre and wonderful whirrs, clicks, beeps and even animal sounds as visitors got the chance to build Scribblebots from scratch and create their own set of interactive sound triggers using Makey Makey. Special thanks to Frank Prendergast for co-facilitating on the day with our youth mentors Jairo and Ruth.
Workshop Series at Educate Together, Bray
Teachers at Educate Together Bray teamed up with Make Create Innovate to develop a 10 hour workshop series for students introducing them to interactive design using Makey Makey. Students responded to the project brief by creating involved many imaginative prototypes such as an interactive poster of affirmative statements, musical stairs, a maths activity incorporating responsive pressure plates and more.

Temple of Treasures
Make Create Innovate worked with artists-in-residence Rachel Tynan and Siobhán Clancy (also Make Create Innovate’s Head Creative) at Temple Street University Children’s Hospital on ‘Temple of Treasures’, a unique live game event developed as part of the Helium Arts ‘Fireflies’ project.

In collaboration with the artists, Kate Delaney and Shane Byrne developed a set of touch responsive units as navigation tools for the game.
