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.
Today was the first day of the 3 day Science Alive event at the Wayville show grounds. I was helping out on the ‘Radio and Electronics’ booth with Paul H, Paul S,(Amateur Radio Operators) and Robyn, and Jonathan from Hackerspace. It was a rather noisy day as it was school’s day, but… I was able to get a little coding down on my Arduino weather station and thanks to Jonathan for his help on couple my problems in my code. After the event finished at 1500 hours Paul S and I went over to pick up a Codan manpack to go on display at Saturday and Sunday at Science Alive. Overall it was a great day and I enjoyed the day
