MakerDojo is a hardware focused club encouraging the general public to explore science and technology in hands-on “hacker” style workshops inspired by the growing Maker movement, a worldwide community of hobbyists, students and enthusiasts who take a creative, DIY approach to technology, science and engineering.

We hope to give you practical experience of STEM areas and the opportunity foster experimentation, collaboration and innovation to become confident inventors, experimenters and creators. We encourage you to voluntarily participate in science, engineering and design in a very interactive way.

The event is aimed for adults down to Transition Year students (think 16 and older), however younger people are encouraged attend as part of a family group. For legal reasons, a parent or guardian must remain in attendance if their ward is 15 years old or younger.

Supported by the SFI Discover programme, Tyndall National Institute, Biomaker Fórma and DesignerDojo have come together to contribute their expertise in materials, devices, biotechnology and 3D design to deliver MakerDojo to the wider community.
