Student Makeathon with FAB9 (FULLY BOOKED)



This event is now complete. If you want to revisit the talk, visit our Library, or subscribe to the MPavilion podcast via iTunes, Pocketcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever else you get your podcasts.

Schools please note: This workshop is for Secondary students.

FAB9—a Footscray-based community of makers—invite future designers, engineers and tinkerers aged twelve to eighteen to join the FAB9 team to create a collaborative combobulation of found and repurposed parts. Together students and the Fab9 crew will build a series of grand interactions of constructed objects to create a Rube Golberg machine of epic and messy proportions.

This event provides a platform for students to work together and compromise, growing creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Join FAB9 to immerse yourself in this fun and messy environment, designed to encourage students to embrace failure in the pursuit of clever solutions.

To book your students into this workshop, and for more information, please contact our program manager Jen Zielinska:

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
