What is MissionV game-based learning? In this 4 minute video, produced by Conn Ó Muíneacháin of Edgecast Media as part of our application to the David Manley Awards 2011, I explain what our 20 school programme is all about and why we’re doing it.

MiLKlabs kicks off with an Arduino workshop

October 27, 2010

Limerick's new creative space – MiLKlabs – kicked off proper last night with an Arduino workshop at University of Limerick (kindly hosted by Mikael Fernstrom in his lab). It was an informal introductory session with a broad overview from Trevor, a demonstration from Marty and a general discussion among the group about interesting project possibilities.

One reason I'm participating in MiLKlabs is to see what innovative ideas can emerge from a group of creative people, all coming from different backgrounds. Even last night it was evident how this can work in practice when there was a range of proposals for Arduino use which could well lead on to actual projects.
