Young Inventors Centre at BYC January 2015

Exploring Senses are now providing two weekly maker space sessions for young people at Brighton Youth Centre during term times.

On Wednesdays there is a Young Inventors Centre digital maker space session for young people aged 13-19yrs between 7pm-9pm. This session is free as its been funded by Sussex Community Foundation. 

On Thursdays there is a Young Inventors Centre digital maker space session for young people aged 13-19yrs between 7pm-9pm. This session runs in parallel with the junior youth club and costs £3

Last year we purchased a Structure Sensor 3D camera and have started to teach young people how to use the digital technology to make 3D printed mash-up objects. The first part of this process is to 3D scan people. These images a screenshots of a people being scanned with the Structure Sensor.

We use Meshmixer to make mashup 3D models and then 3D print them. Here is a picture of a 3D printed model made by a young person at BYC. You can see the process of how models are made in the photos below.
