Welcome to the 3rd episode of Radio MakeFest season 2, the companion podcast to Liverpool MakeFest on June 29th 2019. This time I drove up to Neston on the Wirral to meet up with Pat Link who runs their school makerspace.
Pat has been involved in Maker groups and events around Liverpool for years and it’s great to see him passing on his enthusiasm (and skills of course) to new generations. We talked about how this fits in with the learning structure, what the kids get from it and how supportive the staff and parents have been.
Neston High School Makerspace are doing a great job of contributing towards the world record 3D print attempt we’re going for this year. Just look how many pieces they’ve already done (see pic to right)! Amazing work everyone, we’re on course to smash that record we hope… oh that’s a pun for the old school hi-fi geeks like myself 😀
On the big day Pat and some of the students will be bringing all kinds of wonderful things they’ve made along to Liverpool MakeFest and displaying them at their stand. Not least a MASSIVE plastic shredder they’re making as part of the Precious Plastic recycling initiative. Expertly welded by Colin in the workshop.
