Maker Night & Repair Café – Deconstruction Extravaganza

YuKonstruct is hosting a Deconstruction Night in partnership with Computers for Schools. Let’s take apart IT equipment and see what goes on inside a computer!

Join us at the makerspace on Thursday January 25 for a fun maker night and special computer part tinkering edition of Repair Café.

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.
