Hello all,

Inspirefest is a two day technology conference taking place on
18th-19th of June in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. The conference has
a strong focus on STEM and diversity. To go along with the conference,
there is a host of fringe events taking place in Merrion Square. We
are proud to be taking part in the Family Fringe event on 20th of

We have joined forces with Intel and Girls Hack Ireland to create Stop
the Lights workshop. The workshop will give insights into the basics
of using the Intel Galileo, an Arduino-compatible designed right here
in Ireland. Participant’s will get their hands on LED’s, buttons and
buzzers, to create a traffic light animation.

The workshop is open to all aged between 15 and 17 and is most
suitable for participants who have some prior coding experience.
Participants are not required to bring their own laptop or materials

Date: Saturday June 20th
Time: 10am
Location: Merrion Square, Dublin 2
Duration: 3 hours
Places available: 20.
Tickets: Free, but prebook.


Apart from our workshop we are also teaming up with Dublin Maker to
give people a little taster session ahead of their July event. Dublin
Maker is a family friendly showcase of invention, creativity and
resourcefulness, and a celebration of the maker movement. The taster
session will also feature the Year of Light makers.

We will be showing off projects created by our members. They will
include the Egg Bot – draw your own images onto eggs, Skull Radio –
listen to music without using your ears, Buzzer Game – classic game of
keeping a steady hand and Constellation Quilt – stars, electronics
both met on a quilt.
