HIGH-TECH fun drew high numbers at Portland Basin Museum on Saturday.
 
 
Almost 700 people visited the Ashton site for the Make Stuff activities day – a range of free, hands-on activities which showed how technology can be creative and exciting.
 
 
Workshops included a 3D printer demonstration, Build a Bug, playing the laser harp, Arduino coding, and learning to programme and play in the world of Web Blocks - a fun, building game inspired by Minecraft.
 
 
Cultural Services education manager Tracy Webster said: “We were absolutely delighted with the number of people who attended. Almost 700 was great for a Saturday, especially when it was so close to the start of a new term.
 
 
“We were thrilled to have MadLab approach our service to see if we could be a host venue for Make Stuff. It was super to see so many young people engage with technology in such creative and imaginative ways.”
 
 
MadLab – Manchester Digital Laboratory – is a grassroots innovation organisation. It supports a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meet-ups and courses through to public experimentation with new and emerging technologies – and collaborates with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects.
