Makerfest at The Amy Johnson Festival

Great to be involved with the first Makerfest in Hull, which was part of the Amy Johnson Festival.

Working in the shadows of Amy’s moth, Jason, was the inspiring backdrop for STEAM activities throughout the day.

The scribblebot challenge was ‘a low tech with lots of creative possibilities’ activity enjoyed by families and makers regardless of age or experiences with robot builds.

Art robots were either created by individuals’ ideas or collaborations in small groups which were nurtured for each step of the making process. Intergenerational teams equipped those groups with the different skills needed to complete the build and showcase art.

Or scrapped altogether, inspired by the Amy theme, and turned into aviation flights of creativity instead!


More STEM to STEAM activities came from designing art on screen and seeing final designs painted using the Watercolorbot designed by teenage Sylvia.

Not a typo, but the US spelling for the invention brought to Kickstarter from America and which inspired so many makers of all ages in Hull on Saturday.

We were also sharing news about the Hull Raspberry Jam community in the city and borrowed their Raspberry Pi photo booth.
