Event Description

EDICSligo is organising an event using the expertise & collaboration between Fab Lab Manorhamilton, Fab Lab Nerve Centre and Science Foundation Ireland. Drop in to Sligo Library/EDIC on Stephen Street, Sligo any time between 10:30am and 3:30 pm on Tuesday 28th August and experience some amazing digital making technologies.

In relation to an EU Report  published on 20th September 2016 which aim was to ‘Identify current and future application areas, existing industrial value chains and missing competences in the EU, in the area of additive manufacturing (3D printing). The Fablab network was mentioned as a vehicle to pursue this aim.

We will demonstrate how you can use the new free 3D Printing Facilities in Sligo EDIC and show how other digital fabrication machines available in Fab Labs like Laser Cutters and Vinyl Cutters can create fantastic personalised products very easily. Oh and did we mention there will be robots too! SG Education will be bringing their new Robot Kits along between 12pm and 2pm to introduce coding and robotics for people aged 7 to 70!

Please support your local EDIC & library and come and discover what amazing things you could make. This is a drop in event so no booking is required.
