Details

Every first Wednesday of the month we have a non-organized meetup were OBA sponsors us with their location, 3Dprinter & lasercutter. During this evening you can start learning to work with Arduino, Raspberry Pi or work on a prototype to 3Dprint etc.
Note that we don't provide a course, it is all about DIY, but you can join and help in our mutual projects or find people to collaborate on a project!
Currently we are collaborating on smart soundsensors (Gijs) and the Astroplant (Ted/Michiel), both well underway, but you can still participate in the Astroplant, for example by starting with the challenges from block 1 & 2, to test and improve our instructions: https://github.com/sensemakersamsterdam/astroplant_explorer/wiki.
In March we launched a new project (Mariana) on privacy-proof wearables for kids to stimulate healthier living feel free to join & help!

For more ideas & materials you can also check:

We start at 18:00 and end the evening around 21:00. There are 3Dprinters, lasercutters, tools and enough outlets available! So just bring your laptop (no chromebook!), ideas and lets get going! If you don't have a laptop, please dm Manon.

There is a cafe on the split level on the ground floor and a restaurant on the 7th, but please note that food & drinks are not allowed in the makerspace.

If you want to sponsor us hardware, software and/or (cloud)services, please contact Ted or Manon.
