Music Hacks @ Electric Castle - Cluj, Romania

  • bontida cluj

Electric Castle Festival is the biggest Romanian music festival. It takes place annually on the Bánffy Castle domain in Cluj County, Romania. The festival tries to offer a full experience to the participants by creating a mix between the unique location, filled with beauty and history, daylong urban activities (like extreme sports, audio-video production workshops) and a large variety of music. 

This year Hackidemia will be part of this mix and together with our friends from Cluj Makers we want to build digital and physical experiences based on curiosity and interest to explore the magic of sound.  During 3 days we will make music hacks and instruments using recycled materials, Makey Makey and objects around us.

Come visit our music playground, play electric fruits and make instruments and music by juggling with us.

MakerCamp Shenzhen

  • Software Industrial Base

Beginning on June 12th, Makers from across the world will take part in building an actual Makerspace in Shenzhen out of a freight container, as well as populating the teched-out trailer with exciting educational workshops — in just seven days. Dubbed MakerCamp Shenzhen, the project is a collaboration between Berlin-based HacKIDemia and the Chaihuo Makerspace.

The container itself will sit on the site of the upcoming Maker Faire Shenzhen, the heart of China’s burgeoning Maker Movement. This weeklong summer camp will provide 30 participants with unparalleled access to experienced mentors, various materials and Shenzhen’s most established DIYers to take their projects and skills to the next level. In addition to simply constructing the space, there will be a couple days worth of workshops alongside some of the world’s leading Makers, including Autodesk’s Dawn Danby, Quirky’s Jordan Husney, Maker Faire’s Kevin Lau and Tinkerspace’s Lynn Liu.

 

“Makerspaces are ideal places for Makers to not only get access to tools, but also to meet like-minded people and further their DIY education. However, many communities particularly in China, are still lacking Makerspace, and often times the startup cost is prohibitive,” explains Stefania Druga, founder of HacKIDemia. “MakerCamp, on the other hand, shows communities like Shenzhen that it is possible to build a Makerspace, and a successful curriculum around it with limited resources.”

In just its second MakerCamp, HacKIDemia has already begun to attract attention from the DIY community on a global scale. Last summer, the team put on a monthlong camp in Berlin which attracted over 15 participants spanning across several countries.

 

“After working with makers in the most remote parts of the world as part of HacKIDemia and Afrimakers, a community for makers in Africa,  I realized that local communities would like to create affordable makerspaces and they don’t know how to get started. This is how we got the idea to use shipping containers which can be sourced everywhere and design, build and document the most affordable makerspace where makers from all over the world can create a space that inspires them to tinker,” Druga adds.

The weeklong event (June 12-18th) will take place in the week leading up to Maker Faire Shenzhen. Interested? You can head over to MakerCamp’s page here.

HacKIDemia MakerCamp


15 Makers spending 1 month in Berlin to design and build a makerspace in a container!


We're organizing the first MakerCamp for mentors, makers and designers that want to dive deeper in their projects and be surrounded by a group of super curious and multi-skilled people. 

We will not only develop and play with the HacKIDemia Maker box but actually create a whole maker space in a box (in our case a container). 

Participants will be able to create and play with an actual physical space for makers and run workshops and demos for local community in Berlin. The camp will be running at the same time with the Hardware.co accelerator so we're hoping that our makers will learn how to build sustainable projects for the hardware start-up teams.

We will also have a great team of mentors that have proved that maker projects can become professional and have a real impact.

Hackidemia Sofia

Hackidemia Sofia is excited to come again and load kids with some electrifying hacks for the biggest  holiday - the 1st of June - Children's Day. Together with the Smart Fab Lab - the first FabLab in Sofia and great support from Transformatori and Sofia Tech Park, we are happy to officially announce the event.

WHEN?

1st of June - Children's Day

WHAT?

As much as we all love soldering, the Paper Electronics workshop will guide the children to create complex circuits without using any soldering but instead by playing with circuit stickers! These are peel-and-stick electronics for crafting circuits - multicolored LEDs, a light sensor, a microphone sensor for detecting sound, a timer circuit that turns on your circuit for five seconds at a time. Also complex sensors like the touch sensor - a Microcontroller Sticker that comes set up to work as a touch sensor, but advanced participants will learn how to program the onboard ATTiny85 microcontroller to do anything they want.

Circuit Stickers from Chibitronics

Circuit Stickers from Chibitronics

We will also play with bio sensors in the DIY Bio Hacking workshop done by Georgi Chipov from ChipoLabs. Georgi is a great part of our local community and will show us how to sense our heartbeat, muscle activity and others. 

How do computers learn new things? This will be part of the topic in a Machine Learning workshop designed to show children the basic concepts behind an Image Recognition algorithm. 

The Fabrication Tools Exploration workshop will show the kids how to use different machinery and what can be made with it. We will also explore the unexpected world of wearable devices and design new and creative ways to embed sensors to turn any surface into an interactive experience. 

During the event we will develop two City Sensor stations that would measure air quality in specific part of the city. With this workshops we hope to inspire children and adults to be aware of the environment we live in and do as much as they can to preserve it.

HacKIDemia/Afrimakers @ Maker Faire Bay Area

  • San Mateo

We will be presenting HacKIDemia and Afrimakers @Maker faire Bay area this weekend.

The idea for AfriMakers was born last year u2013 since then the AfriMakers tour, initiated by HacKIDemia, has kickstarted maker workshops focused on local challenges in 8 hubs around Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Zambia, Ghana, Nigeria, Egypt, Botswana). Local teams have created air quality monitoring stations, agriculture pest maps, solar chargers, water filters, and mobile laser cutters. AfriMakers team members are going to show case some of the solutions created and discuss why using local know-how and hands-on prototyping for solving local challenges is more effective in creating access to clean water, energy, and information.

Kostenlos für Kinder ab 5, wurde Kids Hack the City entwickelt, um „den Vorstellungen der Kinder eine Stimme zu geben.“ Warum sind es immer die Erwachsenen, die die Zukunft gestalten, wenn doch die Kinder darin leben müssen? Das ergibt doch überhaupt keinen Sinn! Zum Glück für Berlins jüngste Bewohner hat HacKIDemia einen komplett anderen Ansatz für die Gestaltung der Zukunft – und es fängt alles an mit einem ganzen Tag voller Workshops. Unter anderem können die Teilnehmer lernen wie man Videospiele erschafft, Blumen und Früchte in Schlagzeuge und Keyboards verwandelt, DNA aus Erdbeeren extrahiert und Papier Elektronik kreiert.

 

Wer?

HacKIDemia ist ein mobiles Erfinder-Labor, das zukünftigen Weltgestaltern Zugang zu einem praktischen Wissenschafts-, Technik-, Kunst-, Ingenieurskunst und Design- Wissen gibt. Dieses Wissen ermöglicht es ihnen, Herausforderungen durch das Entwickeln und Testen von kreativen Lösungen und physikalischen Apparaturen zu meistern. Wir glauben, dass Neugierde, Einfühlungsvermögen und Spielen die Welt verändern können. 

Weitere Information zu HacKIDemia und Kids Hack the City, finden sie unter http://hackidemia.com/events
