Bike Gen' Building
Saturday’s Pedal-Power workshop at Wivenhoe Bookshop Shed was a success - we learnt how to build simple bike-generators, battery banks and a renewable energy system from recycled parts and reclaimed materials. Of course, the proof of the pudding is in the eating so we headed out in the evening put our efforts into action by teaming up with local tech-recyclers ML-solutions and hosted a cinema-sized, al-fresco, pedal-powered Playstation extravaganza at the King George V skate ramps.
This Saturday (9th April - 2pm - 5pm) we’ll look at how bike-power can (and can’t) be used to get things done and how it can be used to inspire and educate. And there'll be something fun and pedal-powered in the evening too.
Saturday's workshop is free, but filling up fast...
