ARDUINO WEBINARS FOR BEGINΝERS by Youth Makerspace Larnaka

 

What is Arduino? What are its functions and capacities? How can you create, configure and program an Arduino board?

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform that enables users to create innovative devices based on an easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino Shields are easy-to-plug peripherals (sensors, displays, motor controllers, etc.) that allow users to design and build specialised devices for certain uses. Traffic lights are a common example of Arduino programming, combined with various other material such as LED lights of different colours.

Youth Maker Space Larnaka organises two online workshops.

Arduino for beginners

  • Introduction to Arduino 25/07/2020, 10:30-12:00
  • Arduino Applications 01/08/2020, 10:30-12:00

Workshops for Makers 7/9/2019 – 14/12/2019

Youth Makerspace Larnaka organised training workshops on how to use the technological equipment available at the premises, such as 3D printer, lase cutter and Arduino. These workshops were held between September and December 2019 with great success. The workshops were offered by professional trainers for beginners and advanced users.

The aim of the workshops was to inform and train people on how new technology can contribute to the creation of innovative ideas. Moreover, it was a great chance for participants to network with like-minded people and trainers, while the Youth Makerspace Larnaka community grows even more.

MAKERsHOUSE 2019 – Resident: Nayia Demetriou 2/8/2019-28/5/2020

An audio-visual experience which focuses on major human experiences: birth, life, death, different aspects of self and internal battles and changes that transform our self. A creation of a new, anthropomorphic self. A form that may be recognisable or not, a form of metamorphosis of mind and soul. The internal battles are expressed in a body-transformation game.

Concept/creation: Nayia Demetriou
Sound design: Giorgos Marinou
Technical support: Adamos Demetriou | Synergia Media
Mentor: Antonis Stylianou

Is every crisis we go through transferred on our body? The body turns into a “battle field” of confusion, insecurity and mental distress. Where does the physical aspect of the body stop and where does our self gain importance? Life is a process of constant transformation. We may detect all the changes on our personality, on our mood, but mostly on our face and body. One can find beauty in our self and its ability to turn into something new through its objectification. A deep desire to “recreate” the self. Unlike what is commonly believed, our body is not what we have. Whether we like it or not, it is what we are. An open negotiation between matter and soul, the “raw material” in which our body can be deconstructed: flesh, form and colour. A complex, versatile object which serves as a vessel of soul, and allows each self the chance for personal interpretation.

The presentation is part of MAKERsHOUSE 19 Residency Programme by Youth Makerspace Larnaka.

 

MAKERsHOUSE 19 – Resident: Adonis Archontides

YPOMONI

Merging his research on God Adonis (a god related to the seasonality of nature, life and death) whose name he bears and the use of videogames as visual art, Adonis Archontides uses technological equipment such as a 3D scanner and printer, erasing the borderlines between tangible and virtual, factual and fictional, real and unreal

The presentation is part of MAKERsHOUSE 19 Residency Programme by Youth Makerspace Larnaka.

Open Day 2019 – 13/7/2019

MAKERsHOUSE 2019 – Resident: Xarkis Group 4/3/2019

The new initiative of Xarkis, titled “Prozymin”, refers to the sourdough cultivation which is the basis of fresh dough for bread making. Over the years, bread has gained special significance in the consciousness of people, being the number one staple food of the population of Cyprus and other countries of this region.

In Cypriots’ daily life, the word “prozymin” had acquired a metaphorical meaning: it was used when people wanted to declare the real essence, the base, the core, the “yeast”, in order for something new to begin.

Hence, our new initiative aims at creating a “new yeast” through exploring the meaning of prozymin in the context of contemporary design proposals.

The exhibition will feature experiments, processes and outcomes from the first phase of the project. Join us to see how we used traditional handcrafts in alternative contexts and how we used upcycled materials to design and create furniture.

Participants: Valentin Musteata, Christina Skarpari, Chris Karpis.
