“The NUI Maynooth Maker’s Club is quite simply a time and a place where anyone of any ability, of any background, of any discipline can join in and take some delight in making, building, and inventing anything they can dream up. The Maker’s Club is not confined to electronics. It is not confined to pen and paper. It is not confined to traditional engineering, art or science. It is open to left-brainers, right-brainers and no-brainers. We hope the only limitations you will confront are those of your own imagination – which is an interesting place to be. So come meet us at the Dublin Mini Maker Faire on the 14th July 2012.“
