This year I am very excited to have the affiliated CELS schools running makerspaces as modelled at the Collingwood branch last year. The students have started the journey with introductions to safety, electricity and hygiene. Their initial challenges are to simply learn how to use tools appropriately and safely, in the process of dismantling objects. Some have already started thinking about making from the materials collected from the dismantling process.
Other students discovered that they could operate the salvaged motors with a few alligator leads and AA batteries.
