This fan track is dedicated to exploring all aspects of Robotics and The Maker Movement. We hold informative panels, demonstrations and competitions designed to feed your interest and increase knowledge on the practice and application of invention and engineering.
The maker subculture is a contemporary subculture, representing a technology-based extension of DIY culture. Typical interests enjoyed by the maker subculture include engineering-oriented pursuits such as electronics, robotics, 3-D printing, and the use of CNC tools, as well as more traditional activities such as metalworking, woodworking, and traditional arts and crafts. The subculture stresses new and unique applications of technologies, and encourages invention and prototyping. There is a strong focus on using and learning practical skills and applying them creatively.
