Fortnightly Meetings

Come and see

We meet every second Saturday from 11:00 to 17:00. If the week number is odd then there is a Medway Makers meeting and if its even there is not! For more information look on Facebook or call Tom 07971 308270 or email tomdehavas@gmail.com

Because these meetings are in our homes please bring some form of ID with proof of address. A photo driving licence is sufficient on its own. Otherwise some other form of photo ID with a recent letter from an official body.

The meeting location varies. Usually we are in Chatham on St Mary's Island but we also meet in Gravesend and other locations so check Facebook or call Tom 07971 308270 for the address.

You're welcome to come and join in the making or just watch if you like. Its all a bit informal but fun.

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 get started. We all started somewhere.

You can contact Mike who you can find on the Facebook wall, or Tom on 07971 308270 or tomdehavas@gmail.com

The Linux Command Line

New on our "Knowledge" page. So when this panel leaves the home page look under "Knowledge".

Although Linux has a number of distributions with Graphical User Interfaces, like Ubuntu, the objective of this page and the sub-pages is to look at Linux from an engineering perspective and to learn to use the Command Line Interface.

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.


Maidstone Hackspace

Maidstone Hackspace: Hackspaces are a shared space where artists, designers, makers, hackers, programmers, tinkerers, professionals and hobbyists can work on their projects, share knowledge and collaborate. We are in the process of developing Maidstone Hackspace. We're previous members of (ICMP) and looking to form a new space in the future.

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.
