An exciting new movement has started in Tyndall National Institute, Cork, with the launch of the world’s first MakerDojo.
Modelled on the CoderDojo concept, Tyndall’s MakerDojo is an after-school club, bringing young people together with experienced mentors to learn and grow new skills. But, instead of coding, these kids are learning to build and create hardware using the tools available at the Tyndall workshop, including 3D printers.
Ciara Judge, a Cork native and award-winning young scientist, reports from the launch.
