To toy with your ‘Maker’ quotient
A two-day specially designed buildathon modeled around ‘free-play’: This is for the free-spirited, willing to explore, walk the busy streets of makers paradise (SPRoad, Shivajinagar, K.R.Market etc) sourcing material to explore their creativity for building things that break stereotypes. (On 24 and 25th from 10 AM to 4.30 PM)
Local transport, a few hundred rupees, a bag to source objects of interest, your favourite tools and last but not least comfortable work clothes.
