Toy Hacking! Maker Night & Repair Café

23 November 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ever wondered what’s inside your favourite toys? Looking for ideas on how to reinvent an outgrown childhood trinket? Need a little help fixing something that was played with a little too hard?
Join us at the makerspace on Thursday November 23 for a fun maker night and special toy hacking edition of Repair Café.
Featuring toy projects by YuKonstruct members, a Furby dissection and all the usual Repair Café fixing, this will be a learning experience suitable for all ages!


Repair Café Whitehorse has been helping fix broken stuff with monthly drop-in events at YuKonstruct since 2014. Broken toaster, vacuum cleaner or other small home appliance? Bring it in and see if it is fixable using soldering irons, multimeters and other tools. This easy introduction to electronics and small home appliance repair is a useful evening of DIY learning that you can literally take home.
About the team: Glenn Piwowar has been a registered Professional Engineer in the Yukon for more than 20 years and is a born-again proponent of the Maker’s 3Rs: “Repair, Re-purpose, Re-create”. Michelle Clusiau is always making things; you will frequently find her trying new projects on the laser cutter and sharing her expertise with other YuKonstruct members.
This free event is open to both YuKonstruct members and the public.
