Build a remote controlled buggy with the Fingalmaker

  • Workshop

The Maker Space at Blanchardstown Library is a multi-use, creative and educational community space. It is a dynamic and innovative project developed and funded by Fingal libraries with funding from Creative Ireland. The space houses a range of facilities and tools including laptops, a 3-D printer and a vinyl cutter. This accessible, dynamic and inclusive space is at the heart of the Fingal County Council’s commitments under the Creative Ireland initiative.

On Saturday the 11th of June join us to learn about the BBC micro:bit and how it can be used to control motors using MakeCode block coding software.

In this workshop you will work in pairs to build a remote controlled buggy, as well as gain an understanding about how radio signals and accelerometers are used to control it remotely.

*Participants will not be able to bring their buggies home with them
