Trash-to-Treasure International Workshop

Date: Sat 17 Mar 2018, 10:00 - 17:00

Location: Engineering Building, SEMS, Room G27, Mile End Rd, Queen Mary University of London, London, E1 4NS

One-day only, hands-on, Trash-to-Treasure International Workshop (focused on reuse and recycling!)

Resurrect your old electronics into VERY LOW COST INSTRUMENTS by combining 3D printing and knowledge of components to make: Microscopes, smoke detectors, colour spectrophotometers, microfluidics, centrifuge, & more.

You will also learn about applying your newly acquired skills in our new upcoming Maker Space, where you could use low-cost controllers (Arduino, Raspberry Pi), solder electronic connections, 3D print, troubleshoot robot assemblies and create much more!

Bring your old & broken electronics, including: CD-ROM drives, inkjet printers, old video projectors, Blue Ray drives, old computer mice (no furry ones please), web-cams, broken phones, tablets, LCD screens etc...

We’ll help you open them up and discover the fascinating world inside them (including the Nobel Prizes we promised)
