While at the Bursa AstroFest (which I wrote a post here) I had the chance to meet two teachers who had come from a tiny village school from the small city of Kahramanmaraş. In Turkey, as I usually mention in my posts, 3D printing and most other modern technologies are still really uncommon. But this […]
On the weekend of 28th of June, there was an Astro Fest organised by the Bursa Science and Technology Centre in which participants from all over Turkey came to see all sorts of different space related activities. I also was one of the participants there and I showed the technology of 3D printing which is […]
On the 28th of February, it was the first official Maker Faire held in Ankara. It was a really small organisation when compared to the one I went to in Bay Area last year, but the Maker Faire here attracted much more attention then I had expected. Even tough the ‘Maker Movement’ is almost unknown […]
Last year me and my dad built a Prusa i3 together and later on donated it to my school. I wanted to create a Maker Club in school that could be accessible by all and would be used and enjoyed. Unfortunately, this didn’t work out very well last year. This year tough, with the help […]
A few months ago I had won the MakerEd Challenge and as a prize I earned a Makerbot Replicator 5th Gen. After quite a bit of time trying to get it to Turkey, it is finally here, kind of. Of course it got stuck in the customs. And worse news, I get a free prize, […]
In Maker Faire Bay Area 2016, while I was talking with someone they asked me where I am from and just as I said ‘Turkey’ there were two people walking past my booth and they turned out to be Turkish. One of them was from the biggest newspaper in Turkey and after a short talk […]
The Maker Faire Bay Area was probably my best maker experience so far. And being my first Maker Faire it felt absolutely amazing. Everything about it was a memory I will never forget. So this is my summary of Maker Faire Bay Area 2016. To start it off, I reached an audience of 100 people […]
I started to make my preparations in my booth. I decorated my table and got my fillet gauges ready. I also had time to meet with other makers, such as Brook Drumm, CEO of Printrbot (really nice guy). It was really fun trying to take an old desk and making into something that I can […]
2 Days before Maker Faire starts, we went to the old prison Alcatraz. It was a really interesting place and I really liked it. We spent most of our time there that day but I think it was worth it. If you happen to visit San Francisco you should most definitely check it out.
On Tuesday, we went to San Francisco and had a walk in the port. The piers and just the city itself was amazing. There we went to Fisherman’s Wharf and we just cruised around San Francisco with the car. We also drove on Lombard Street.
