Event Details

Guest workshop: Drone building
All the way from Perth Australia Brett Downing is visiting the Netherlands and dropping by ProtoSpace to give a guest workshop in building your own drone. As a child Brett took a liking to electronics and robotics so Brett started building at a very young age. Later on he has studied physics and mechatronics and started building drones as part of a thesis project in computer vision. Brett has worked at Fablab WA for two years, teaching applied engineering.

This two-day workshop takes place on the 27th and the 30th of March from 17.30 till 21.30 and takes you through every step of building your own drone which will be finished at the end of the second night.
