Also this year there are several workshops to join at the Eindhoven Maker Faire. Because we work with time slots of 2 hours in the Klokgebouw, we have moved the longer workshops to Microlab. That way you can visit the Maker Faire relaxed and also participate in great workshops. Microlab is located at an approximately 5 minute walk from the Klokgebouw.


There are three different workshops that you can participate. You pay for the material costs for each workshop. It will take you about 1 / 1.5 hours. Are you also crazy about building? Then these workshops are for you!


Have you always wanted to build your own hovercraft? It’s possible at the Build Your Own Mini Hovercraft workshop. Build a remote-controlled hovercraft from a garbage bag, a motor, a propeller, lots of tape and a WiFi module. You can control the hovercraft with your own smartphone or tablet (iOS and Android).

At Varikabi you can build a multifunctional sensor-controlled robot. The Varikabi nature-inspired robots react perceptively to their environment and can recognize obstacles, lights, shadows or markings on the floor. Twelve amazing functions are possible. After building you can test your robot on different tracks.
