  • UESTC Makerspace, China


    A speaking rubbish bin was among the amazing projects I, Lucy Rogers, saw recently at the UESTC Makerspace in the city of Chengdu in Sichuan province in Southwest China. I also invited to the Southwest Jiaotong University (SWJTU) Makerspace in the same city.


    • SWJTU Makerspace, China


      An Arduino panda tracking collar and a Banana Piano was just two of the amazing projects I, Lucy Rogers, saw at the SWJTU Makerspace in the city of Chengdu in the Sichuan province of Southwest China. The SWJTU Makerspace is open to everyone - not just students. I met professors, teachers, students, children and also professionals from industry, including someone from Intel.

              Andrew Back

              The May 2014 Open Source Hardware User Group meeting featured talks on experiences of using the LilyPad Arduino to teach basic electronics and coding, using the Raspberry Pi as an education tool, and MzTEK, a non-profit organisation that aims to redress the imbalance of women artists working in the fields of new media, computer arts, electronics and technology.
