As part of a booth organiser for the Amateur Radio & Electronics booth this year we are planning to be more hands on and are going to have a remote station that we’ll have access to in country Victoria we can us to access and transmit on the 40m band via the internet, which we’ll allow the public to make contact with other stations to get a first hand fell to what one aspect of amateur radio is about.

Also hoping to have some IRLP action going to via the VK5RAD 70cm repeater.

Adelaide Mini Maker Faire

WHAT IS A MINI MAKER FAIRE?
A Maker Faire is where makers of all kinds get together and show what they can do. Adelaide Mini Maker Faire will have all kinds of demonstrations from 3D printing to blacksmithing and knitting to digital fabrication and everything in between.

Maker Faires feature innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.

Maker Faire is part of a growing DIY local and global movement of people who look at things a little differently and who just might spark the next generation of scientists, engineers and makers.

Date: Saturday 6 April 2013
Venue: Adelaide College of Arts 39 Light Square, Adelaide

Science Alive 2012

I have added a gallery of some the pictures I took while I was at Science Alive from Thursday to Sunday at the Wayville Showgrounds. Thursday was setup day for the 3 day event with Friday set a side for the high school children. I was a part for the Electronics and Communication, and Hackerspace stalls.

It was a great event and ran rather smoothly, we had a lot more interest in the Amateur Radio side of things this year compared to last year. and the Reprap 3D printers of hackerspace were a hoot with the public aswell.

This is a quick video of an AR Drone that one of the people part of our stalls bought in.
