Our current major project is The Ginormous Geodesic Dome. It incorporates all aspects of S.T.E.A.M. and is an excellent example of maker-led project-based education. We have already developed and built both a small-scale (2’ diameter) and medium-scale (5’ diameter) version of a Geodesic Dome. The medium-scale version has been exhibited at the ICT in Education conference in Thurles; Dublin Maker; European Maker Week in Ireland and a number of schools in Kerry, Mayo, Tipperary, Dublin, Limerick and Cork.
We would now like to expand the project to a 15′ version – and to this end we have applied to MakerFaire Rome (2018.makerfairerome.eu/en/) to demonstrate The Ginormous Geodesic Dome Project there. Amazingly – our project has been accepted!
MakerFaire Rome is the largest MakerFaire in Europe with 250,000 people viewing the projects there over 3 days. One-fifth of the Exhibition Centre will be dedicated to the Educational Sector and over 750 projects from 40 countries and all EU member states will be represented – including Ireland.
Our desire is to create The Ginormous Geodesic Dome Project to exhibit it at MakerFaire Rome as well as tour it around Ireland in the coming academic 2018-2019 school year. The Ginormous Geodesic Dome Project will be a 15’ diameter version which will allow us to bring it to schools to demonstrate and hold workshops inside the dome itself. To this end, we are seeking sponsorship from you in one of the following tiers:
