Virtual MakerMindset@i-Space Programme – Online Workshops and Webinar

As affected by COVID-19 pandemic, our MakerMindset@i-Space Programme from September to November 2020 will be switched to online mode for the first time, with topics focusing on Internet of Thing (IoT) and tech culture.


Internet of Things (IoT) Online Workshops

Internet of Things (IoT) applications offer innovative solutions to improve efficiency on every aspect of our daily life. A good example is making automated responses to scenarios based on environmental data.  The following IoT workshops are designed to help you learn the concept and create your own IoT application even if you do not have any programming experience or electronic knowledge.

Successful applicants will be given a set of IoT component for free ahead of time, when applicable.  Our instructors will teach you how to configure and programme the IoT component during the online workshops.
