Well the dust has settled, the mountain of e-waste is almost recycled and MakeRoom has returned to its usual level of ‘almost tidy’. Wellington’s first ever Maker Faire has been and gone and we’re feeling it went pretty well.
I wanted to share some of the photo’s we took while on our booth. We ran a display that showed some of the kids work as well as giving everyone something to get their hands into. All our Stem Club students (wearing awesome MakeRoom T-Shirts) got stuck in and were helping members of the public pull apart our mountain of E-waste. At one point we thought we might run out but fortunately that didn’t happen.
At the centre of it all was the MakeRoom sign that we constructed for the event. Again, our Stem Club kids helped put that together so it was very much a team effort. Thank you everybody!
Our efforts were well rewarded, our booth was very popular and we even won an award for the most interactive and engaging stall. Big thanks to the organizers - Capital E. Hopefully this will become a yearly event. We will definitely be back.
See you all soon. Enjoy the pics!
