Event Details

Facilitator: Janice Chan

Come join us and discover how you can reuse the tremendous online resources in Trove, a collection of digital treasures maintained by the National Library of Australia. The Trove API provides data in a machine-readable form, enabling you to make great things like web applications and visualisations. A starter kit will be provided to participants prior to the event. Bring an idea and a laptop, team up with other participants and turn your novel ideas into reality! Graphic designers, programmers, data visualisation enthusiasts, application developers, researchers, or anyone interested in playing with data are welcome.

Light Makers @ your Library is a week long public makerspace event held in the Robertson Library, on level 2 during National Science Week, August 17 - 21. Makerspace activities will be focused on the theme of 'light' which will blend the boundaries of science, art and humanities. Curtin Library will be running self-directed activities, guided workshops and collaborative projects over the week.

Suitable for ages 8 and above. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
