Medway Maker Show

We're sorry to have to postpone the Medway Maker Show till next year some time. We just didn't sell enough tickets in the short time available but we believe that Chatham needs a Maker Faire and we are really working to make it happen. See Medway Maker Show

Instead on Sun 2nd Oct

Introduction to Making

We will have a special meeting at my place where we will be welcoming you to come and join in the making or just watch if you like. Its all a bit informal but fun. For £15 we will help you build a radio the same as the ones in the Radio Activity video below, or may prefer to see the model railway (just starting) or make yourself a set of traffic lights for £10.

Sunday 2nd October, from 11:00 to 17:00 at 12 Dunlin Drive, St Mary's Island, Chatham ME2 3JE

Meetings and Contact

All up and coming dates will also be posted here but for general news and discussion about lots of things see Facebook.

Every Medway Makers meeting is made by the people who turn up either to make something or to watch others making things. So even if you don't have a project on the go right now come along anyway and perhaps someone can help you to make your dream project a reality. We all started at the beginning once.

The Radio Activity

Science Faction Ltd with the help of Medway Makers ran "The Radio Activity" for 39 Chinese students from the Cambridge International Education & Cultural Centre.

None of them had ever built a radio before! We achieved 100% working radios.

See the Radio Activity on Science Faction's website.

The Big Three

Science & Technology - because its magic and it makes things work.

Art & Design - because it makes things beautiful and so pleasurable to have around you.

Innovation & Industry - because it is what delivers, the above, to people.

The combination of these three are the essential ingredients of a modern society.
