Workshops   |   Saturday 10th June 2023   |   Venue: Caherciveen Library

Make a Spinner Toy   |   Time: 10.30-11.30   |   Ages: 7-9
This S.T.E.A.M. project primarily explores motion, speed, dexterity and co-ordination! Participants will also learn about “Frugal Science” where researchers from Stanford University took this simple toy and made it a working centrifuge! Participants will use simple materials to make their own toy that will spin, hum and spin much faster than a standard centrifuge. Centrifuges spin at about 15,000rpm, bicycle wheels about 100rpm and car wheels about 1500rpm! This Whirlygig can spin at a hugely impressive 50,000rpm!
Note: Workshop limited to 30 participants

Make Mini Rockets   |   Time: 12.00-13.00   |   Ages: 10-12
Join us to make very simple but highly effective mini rockets! These rockets can be launched over 30 feet! Only basic materials will be needed for this experiment which can be done easily at home or in the classroom. We will explore energy, distance and more in this exciting and fun experiment.
Note: Workshop limited to 30 participants

3D Game Modelling   |   Time: 14.00-15.00   |   Ages: 13-15
Explore the 3D world and create a simple game! We will use a very simple 3D modelling programme to create and play a game. This workshop will give you the free tools to begin to create your very own 3D models and expand this into the world of AR. See what your designs look like as Minecraft or Lego builds.
Note: Workshop limited to 15 participants

Green Screen FX   |   Time: 15.30-16.30   |   Ages: 16-18
We’ve all heard of “Green Screen” special FX in movies, tv and more… come explore and learn how it works and how you can also create this remarkable FX for your own videos or films - using cheap, simple software. Your images will be yours and shared with you at the end of the session.
Note: Workshop limited to 30 participants
