ART and RECYCLED ELECTRONICS
The Project had been implemented as a mobile or pop-up FabLab in partnership with Alytus Art school and 4 other local Schools.
The proposed activities with students and teachers were focused on experimenting and prototyping with recycled materials and components, combined with introducing of programming and prototyping with 2D/3D opensource software, digital fabrication machines and electronics lab.
During the course of one week the following activities were implemented with different groups of students:
⇢ Disassembling devices for reusable components - motors, stepper motors recovered from
used electronic devices e.g. printers, CD/DVD players etc.
⇢ Introduction and workshops for designing with 3D printing, plottering and laser-cutting;
⇢ Basic programming with micro:bit and soldering;
⇢ Individual projects with students of different ages - vibrobots and kinetic installations;
⇢ Presenting the results during the Alytus Art School Maker Faire event.
