Lowther Hall Nora Collisson Centre (Library): Our Makerspace
We use many different resources in the MakerSpace but here are some of them that we use with the relevant links.
Makey Makey kits are used for many different projects and are a lot of fun. They are very simple to use. The operation game featured in the video clip was one such creation. We purchased ours from the US and then locally once they became available in Australia.
LittleBits are great fun and we have a variety of kits, we purchased directly from Little Bits in the US, they have a comprehensive list of ideas and activities on their website.
Sparkfun kits are an ideal way to get involved with physical computing, they feature an Arduino type module with breadboard and all the accessories to do many different circuits. Great easy to follow book with instructions on doing these.
We also have a range of tools and accessories needed for making, scissors, wool, thread, knitting needles, glue, tape, copper tape, wire, wire cutters and strippers, cutting boards, jewellery making pieces, beads, modelling clay, material, paper, cardboard, anything that can be recycled too!
