What are Build Groups?
Build groups are community operated groups where people collaborate and learn from each other on some really valuable and open ended projects. The resources are all provided by NB Makerspace.
This group is a place for makers, professionals and hobbyists where they meet and get themselves involved in making and building crazy things like unusual artworks, creative designs and abstract prototypes. In these Build Groups industry experts are invited to share information on technologies and making things.
What you get in Build Groups?
There is a coach for every build group. We provide you all the tools, resources, guidance and everything that is required to build the project. In return we offer an immense learning experience, a certificate of participation and free memberships to NB Makerspace.
Who can join us?
It is open to all students, hobbyists, makers, professionals, artists or anyone who has interest in making things.
Build Groups held so far
Tyrannosaurus Rex (T- Rex) was one of the largest land carnivores of all time; the largest complete specimen, located at the Field Museum of National History. It was known colloquially as FMNH PR2081 and nicknamed as “Sue”. It measured 12.3 meters (40 feet) long, and was 4 meters (13 feet) tall at the hips.
We are planning to model this giant dinosaur from scrap with the help of volunteers and makers from everywhere across the globe.
The Selfie Booth
Taking selfies is the foremost trend nowadays and photo booths are absolute fun! They can inspire goofiness in just about anyone. To make a selfie booth on your own is a great project for learning to tinker with photography and electronics on the Pi.
Here’s an opportunity for you to get crazy creative. Be a part of the ‘Selfie Booth’ making team at Nuts and Boltz and have lots and lots of fun.
The Game Parlour
Nuts and Boltz invites geeks, makers, programmers, hobbyists and enthusiasts to come and participate in making the game parlor a reality. Projects created with Raspberry Pie are truly incredible. The low-cost microcomputer is used to power home automation projects, servers, media centers, and many other do-it-yourself projects. One of the coolest projects is called Retro Pie, which transforms the Raspberry Pie into a retro gaming console and gives you the ability to play classics games.
