Demonstrating Virtual Reality technology
Learning to solder - Mini Make Day

Mini Make Day - Melbourne Library Services

Mini Make Day is a Maker event that brings Melbourne’s Maker Culture to Library at the Dock, an experimental library of the future that houses a fully functional Makerspace and technological session. It was created and run by Gil Poznanski.

Mini Make Day has been running since July 2015 allowing the public to meet Melbourne’s Makers, view and discuss some of their projects in an environment that allows exploration and inquisitiveness in a fun and relaxed venue.

Mini Make Day has also provided the forum for the public to listen to formal presentations about technology, education, and innovation through our Keynote presentations that run through the day, as well as taking part in some hands-on workshops that facilitate learning by learning new skills and exploring new ideas.

Mini Make Day is a family event, and we cater to the younger audience of Maker with specialised Maker workshops allowing kids to have an introduction to the basics of electronics, coding and creativity wishing the sessions held.

Mini Make Day host a large number of technological topic including, but not limited to:

  • 3D printing and scanning
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality
  • Robotics
  • Electronics
  • Arduino
  • Soldering Basics
  • Maker Community
  • Drone technology
  • Coding
  • Gamification
  • Wearables
  • Innovation
