GOSH! 2016 Day 3: Sharing What We Know

Build Workshops

Full Day Workshop 1 (09:30 – 16:30)

From OSH to Open Wetware – OSS Laboratory Learning Kits
by Juanma García, Open Science School
Needs full day to grow and incubate living things…

½ Day Workshop 1 – Morning: From Zero to Behavioural Testing in one Morning, TReND in Africa

by André Maia Chagas, Teaching and Research in (Neuro)science for Development in Africa
Learn how to program an arduino for neat neuroscience experiments, all hands on in one morning!

½ Day Workshop 2 – Morning: Design and Destroy or Deploy! Creating Camera Rigs for Aerial Photography

by Tony Chiotti and Gretchen Gehrke, Public Lab
In this workshop we will design new rigs for attaching, stabilizing, and protecting cameras on kites that will be used for aerial photography. We’ll create new designs using available materials, and test our designs by a variety of means, including dropping them off of high places! If our camera rig designs work and the weather permits, we’ll fly the kites and take some aerial photos.

½ Day Workshop 3 – Afternoon: TMPI Design Cycle Workshopology in Nepal

by Suresh Ghimire, Karkhana
Making is not just fun but also a great learning opportunity. When it is backed up with a process everyone can relate to, both fun and learning get amplified. “TMPI Design Cycle” is a cyclical and iterative method that can easily be incorporated into the classroom to enhance the learning experience without reducing fun.

Wrap-up, learnings

17:00 – 18:00
Synkie performance by Michael Egger et al., a.n.y.m.a.

Synkie – Open Source Modular Analog Video Processor
The Synkie is a modular open source analog video processor, developed by Michael Egger, Flo Kaufmann and Max Egger. Like the venerable modular Moog synthesizer it lets you toy around with the signal using patch cables – but this time not producing sound but images. It is an instrument for video, a playground, a platform to explore new ways to transform a video signal. Synkie is still in development, we constantly develop new modules – and even the base specifications may still change over time. But right now there’s already enough stuff to have fun playing around and the instrument has already a complexity that gets hard to control. This will be live-streamed to the Museum of Post Digital Cultures online exhibition “To Outer Space, to Cyberspace – The online life of obsolete media”

18:00 – late
Visit and Apéro @ Hackuarium, Renens
The open and community laboratory in the Greater Lausanne area. Drinks and nibbles with the Hackuarium Community.
