DataTjejWorkshop

Together with the association Data Tjej (eng. Computer Girl) I created and led a workshop at Sliperiet in Umeå. Sliperiet is an incubator and work space for the creative industries.

The aim of the workshop was to show the FabLab facilities and to recruit female volunteers. The evening started with a short presentation of Sliperiet and FabLab, then two groups were formed (about 15 participants in each). One group started with an Arduino introduction, and the other got an introduction on the laser cutter. After about 2 hours we had some coffee and then the groups switched stations.
