It is makey makey time at #BirminghamMadeMe. A Hackathon for Non Techies. Honest!

Birmingham Made Me takes a different tack on Wednesday 19th June. Far from the standard works of  a design and innovation conference; this session is a hands on approach to innovation. Have you ever heard of makey makey; neither had I ….well take a look at this video.

It is an approach developed at MIT to encourage non techies into the innovation sphere. Seems quite easy!

This workshop is lead by Mark Brill, Mobile Strategist, Innovation Consultant, and Senior Lecturer at Birmingham City University and Andy Hartwell of Substrakt, an innovative digital design company based in Birmingham, whose recent work includes Dozens and Trails an app highlighting the enormous range of content in the New Library of Birmingham. Both are keen innovators and want to take you on a journey.

There are still tickets left for this event which can be reserved here . Please note the line up of the event has changed from what is listed on the ticketing page. This morning session is an expanded hackathon.(If you want more details of the event get in touch with Alexa Torlo; alexa.torlo@bcu.ac.uk – the organiser of this session)  Get there for 9.00 as the session kicks off at 9.15 – going through to 12.30.
