What we're about

This group is for members and visitors to Makespace, a community workshop in Cambridge, UK. The meetups are organised by community members both in the space and elsewhere in Cambridge.

To tweak your email preferences for the group, please go to https://meetup.meetup.makespace.org/settings/

We would love to meet:

* Community members, enthusiasts, and educational groups who could benefit from a lab in which to work together, network, socialise, and draw on the expertise of others

* People working within local industries looking to innovate in ways that require new skills, equipment and contacts

* Companies and consultancies that support innovation and prototyping, and who could provide training, support, leading to the sale of their services

* Innovators needing to produce physical prototypes to further their ideas

If this could include you, please help us maintain and grow Makespace by joining now, telling us:

* Who you are, and any company/group affiliation
* What you could contribute to and/or how you could benefit from Makespace
* Any other ideas, requirements or suggestions to improve Makespace

CoderDojo - FREE Code Club for kids

👩‍💻 CoderDojo 👨‍💻

CoderDojo happens on the first Saturday of every month in the Makespace classroom.

This is a FREE coding club for young people, run by volunteers.

**This event page is just here to book the room out and inform Makespace members that it exists. Please ensure all Ninjas (that's the young people) have their place secured by registering them through the CoderDojo portal.**

---| Coding for young people aged 7-17 |---

Learn coding in 😺 Scratch, 🐍 Python and more! No experience is required - just bring your kids along so they can have some fun!

Make sure you bring:

  • 💻 A laptop, if you have one. If you are struggling to source one then we can lend you one courtesy of the wonderful people at Makespace.
  • 🔌 A charger (for the laptop!)
  • 👩‍👦 A parent! (Very important). If your child is 12 or under, a parent or guardian must stay with them during the session.

Booking
We need to ensure we have enough mentors to run a good session. To help with this, please book all ninjas (that's the kids) into the CoderDojo portal, as spaces are limited:

Wood Lathe Induction

Makespace main room

This is an induction into the use of the Wood Lathe

You will need to use a dusk mask and eye protection. If needed we can disinfect one of the pairs of goggles at MS but you need to bring your own personal mask - at least to PP2 standard.

If you have a particular project in mind then let me know but one possibility for the session is a kitchen roll holder as that requires both spindle and faceplate turning and is quite functional. It does not really matter what project you start as long as we can cover all the essentials of the training needed. You don't need to supply any wood.

This the final step in becoming qualified to use the Wood lathe and Easywood tools in Makespace. You need to have completed the on-line training successfully. Please pay £2.50 into iZettle

FAQ

Q: Can I sign up for this before my keyfob has been activated, working and tested by me?
A: No.
Q. Can I be late?
A: No.
Q. I can't make...
A: Cancel here on meetup so that someone else can have your slot.

You'll have to have a fully activated fully working Makespace keyfob.
