The Clubhouse team had a very successful and fun day at the St. Patrick’s Festival “Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science” on Sunday 15th March. The team was Boxy, Abdul, Kerryn, Des, Luke, Angel and Bianca. We all met at the clubhouse at 9:30am and after packing all our gear into the bus we made our way over to Merrion Street. We were assigned a really nice big space in one of the tents which we set up for our demonstrations and workshop.
We brought along a number of projects to showcase. Angel and Bianca demonstrated many of the projects to the visitors. Everyone loved the guitar that Angel and Emma made with MakeyMakey and Scratch.
We ran a workshop building Drawbots which was an amazing success. We unfortunately ran out of Drawbots during the day and will need to bring tons more for next time!!
Angel also had an opportunity to try out some science.
Thanks to all the team for a great show and a special extra Thank You to Angel, Bianca and Luke for running a great event for the Clubhouse.
