Workshop Customer Feedback

• Hello, I just wanted to mention that this course [Wall Dodge Robot] was very helpful and informative, Rachel did an amazing job explaining everything and walking me through the project and I am very glad that jaycar is running these courses because they are very accessible and a good starting off point for beginners like myself. - Grayson

• We thoroughly enjoyed an Arduino workshop at the Jaycar Maker Hub. Fantastic instructors walked us through building the classic game of snake…we got all the materials and the workshop. They run several workshops through the week so we will definitely be doing more. - Kurt

• WOW, your Arduino Workshop was AMAZING! You’re a Totally Terrific Tech Team! - Daniel

• Amazing MakerHub concept. I just took my 11 y.o. son and his friend for an Intro to Circuit workshop and we had a ball. Thank you Rachel for the awesome session. She is so knowledgable, passionate and patient. What an incredible and unique idea, beyond simple common coding and focuses on the hardware side of things. – Sony

• Attended Maker Workshop with my 9 year old daughter for Solder a wearable badge and mbot coding. Dan (Instructor) was explaining in detail and safe manner. I was worried about hot soldering iron but he managed to complete workshop on time. My daughter did everything herself. She is doing another projects herself. Great activity. – Pragnesh
