Students were free to choose their own topics, but had to use technology in some way to showcase (or support) whatever they made. Students have managed the projects themselves, receiving teaching on speciality software (delivered in some cases by peers) and project documentation. Students have also used our participation in Quadblogging to let students in Scotland and Canada know about our “Nano” Maker Fair projects. The Brighton Mini Maker Faire, would be a fantastic opportunity and culmination of the hard work of the students and allow them to present their work to fellow makers.
The projects we will highlight at the Mini Maker Faire are:
Design & creation of social/interactive website
Couple of animated films.
2 complex games, designed, created (using free software) and tested on peers, using free software
