NB: Please only RSVP if you will be actively participating whilst at the event. Makers gotta make!

OzBerry invites you to join us for an all day making spectacular! Arduinos (and compatible) will feature at the event to bring your ideas to life.

Whether you're new to coding and want learn a little more about Arduino, or wanting to collaborate on projects with others, this OzBerry meetup is for you.

With an Arduino-fueled hack-day, you'll get to make with others from complete beginners to our regular engineers and brains trust.

NB2: you must bring at least a laptop to get involved with the coding. Bringing some special parts for your project would be great too

Maker theme #1 - SteamPunk

Be inspired by this alluring genre, and make your own wearable piece of SteamPunk gadgetry.

Bring your own materials and collaborate with others to make something astounding to take home.
Useful components: small dc motors, yellow leds, wood, metal, leather, glass vessels, and broken wind-up clocks.

For those who just wanting to dabble, there will be share-components to make something and/or reverse engineer. Just let one of the facilitators know and they'll help you get started.

Maker theme #2 - Multicolour lights

How do you take lighting to the next level? With individually programmable tri-colour LEDs of course!

These work wonders in projects ranging from gentle mood lamps to extravagant hoops. With the help of OzBerry facilitators, you'll learn to tinker with the light-array in Arduino.

Once you've got a hang of things, your imagination is the limit!

Bring your own parts, or improvise with shared lights and materials for your design ideas.
