Description

Join us for the February 2019 edition of Maker Monday, our monthly slice of inspiration from the creative and tech worlds. This month's event focuses on two different areas in remote technologies.

Confirmed speakers so far

Martin O'Hanlon loves technology and creates projects & learning resources for Raspberry Pi Foundation, a UK-based charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. As a child he wanted to be either a computer scientist, astronaut or snowboard instructor. Martin created Blue Dot as a super simple way to remotely control Raspberry Pi projects using Bluetooth and is co-author of 'Adventures in Minecraft'. @martinohanlon.

Dr Alan Richards is Innovation Lead at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab at Coventry University. Alan's career has encapsulated a multitude of roles, from electrical engineering, business improvement and long-term strategy, to lecturing in management information systems and organisational behaviour. Amongst Alan's many hats, he is also Certified facilitator of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method and materials. His passion is for disruptive innovation that melds business imperatives with academic endeavour to maximise practical application. @cualanrichards. Alan's talk will be looking at DIY drone technologies by everyone from the Taliban to citizen journalists.
