How do I…?

… get started?

You just need to join the makerspace as part of a course or a sparetime-project. No experience in microcontrollers, sensors or actuators is needed to join us. If you need some guidance at the beginning, we will be glad to help you out.

… join the makerspace?

The makerspace is managed by its users. We are currently a small group, and you are very welcome to join – both if you need a space to do your bachelor/master/outside-course project or alternatively, for doing a sparetime-project.

We usually meet every Friday from 13:00-17:00 in the Makerspace, you are welcome to come by for a visit. Drop a line to either Maria (maria.mb@di.ku.dk) or Martin (dybber@di.ku.dk), to let us know if are coming!

Currently we communicate through Slack at https://diku.slack.com. Sign-up with a KU-emailaddress or write us an email and we will invite you.
