MAKEIT Workshop Plans & Kits


We’ve gone and done it! We’ve documented some of our popular workshops, and they are all yours! Yes, you may download, use, edit, present and re-write these workshops plans to make them your own! Plus, just to put the cherry on the top, we’ve packaged up kits with all the bits you’ll need.

We’ve documented some of our most popular workshops and made them available to download under Creative Commons, so that you (and your friends/crafty mates/group/kids/students) can have fun too!

The MAKEIT Workshop Plans offer introductory level 45 minute workshops on film editing, mechanics and soft circuits, with more workshops to be added in the coming months. (Keep an eye out in the lead up to National Science Week too, because we will be releasing some very special workshop plans celebrating the International Year of Light).

So far our suite of MAKEIT Workshop Plans includes:

  • LED Postcards Using a range of craft materials and simple electronic techniques we’ll teach you how to construct and decorate an LED postcard.
  • Fear of the Small Screen Move over Scorsese! This workshop will show you how to film, edit and output a short (30 second) horror film trailer.
  • Blinking Badges Who doesn’t want a badge that blinks?! This workshop teaches you soft circuit techniques to create an LED badge.
  • Vibrobot Bug Racers It’s race time! Construct, test and race vibrating bug bots in this 45 min introductory workshop.
