Event & Workshop Volunteers, Make Stuff

After a successful tour of events in 2016 Make Stuff is hitting the road again this January and we would like you to be a part of it. Do you love getting creative? Or getting hands-on with tech? Want to learn new skills, or gain events experience? Then we’d love to hear from you.

About Make Stuff

Make Stuff is MadLab’s ‘tech roadshow’; a series of pop-up events encouraging hands-on, immediate interaction with technology. Each stop of the tour focuses on a series of drop-in workshops such as an introduction to the Arduino board, virtual reality experiences, soldering light-up LED badges, and sewing circuits into clothing with conductive thread.
