This is a quick update to let you all know we are switching our blogging activity to Youtube from now on. Blogger is great for activities in which a strong text-based narrative is important for putting your story across but everything we do is video-clip based. The uploader app on my smartphone is a bit clunky as well which is a bit infuriating and worse still it strips out the text I upload when updating the Youtube channel meaning that our Youtube channel has no sensible text description for each clip. I am going to slowly over the next few months write description text for all the old videos. I am hoping this will be a fun reflective exercise in which we can look back and remind ourselves of some of the fun design'n'makes. Our youtube channel is here
Please subscribe to it. The first video I have uploaded directly is the Dublin Mini Maker Faire launch with the SG, TOG and Irish Robotics Club.

In the maker lab this week we found Conor - a transition year student who has been doing fabulous work for John Malocco . Nothing to do with the Makers club but had to put it on the blog as he did such a great job of programming autonomous Lego mindstorms robots to track a ball for robo soccer purposes.
