MakeRoom Holiday Programmes

Our holiday programme runs every term break as well as over the summer.  It is made up of one day workshops focusing on a big build with lots of fun learning along the way.  Everyone gets to take the project they have constructed home with them at the end of the day.

 

- One day sessions

- Only 6 Kids per group

- 9am to 3pm or 3.30pm

- $120 (including GST) for the day

- Open to kids aged 9-14

- Parents and Guardians welcome

 

The holiday programme is run from our home base in Miramar.  118 Miramar North Road.

 

On the day:

- Students should bring their own food and water bottle (morning tea and lunch)

- Students should wear closed toed shoes for safety in the workshop

- Students with long hair should have it tied back for safety

 

Pre-Xmas 2020

 

Due to extra demand we are now offering 4 days of our holiday programme in the lead up to Xmas.

We will have two programmes on offer...

 

 Hexagonal Light Pods The Door Sentry
Friday 11th December - 9am to 3pm Monday 7th December - 9am to 3pm
Monday 14th December - 9am to 3pm Friday 18th December - 9am to 3pm

 

  

The first project this school holidays is “The Door Sentry”. Use it to protect your bedroom from unwanted siblings.

Powered by the Arduino Micro-controller it gives guests a wireless doorbell they can ring for your attention OR if you aren’t around and someone enters your room unannounced it uses an ultrasonic sensor to ring an alarm letting you know that intruders are at work.

You’ll get to spray paint your pieces, solder together the components and code your machine to make it awesome. And, of course, you get to take it home at the end of the day!

No previous experience is required and you’re welcome to bring a grown up if you want to.

Note this is a one day workshop so students should only book for one session.

 

 

 

The second project this school holidays is our “Hexagonal LED Pods”.  Use yours to create a cool ambient light effect on your bedroom wall.  It's almost an electronic work of art!

Powered by the Arduino Micro-controller you can change the light effect at the push of a button, or even have the lights react to sound using the built in microphone.  From a gentle changing rainbow ripple through to spinning wheels of colour - choose a setting to match your mood.

You’ll get to glue your pieces together, solder the components and code your machine to make it awesome. And, of course, you get to take it home at the end of the day! 

 No previous experience is required and you’re welcome to bring a grown up if you want to.

Note this is a one day workshop so students should only book for one session.
