Institute of Making Open Day

Described as an ‘extravaganza of materials and making around the theme of GASES’, the Institute of Making hosted a fabulous ‘one-day, large-scale, drop-in and totally free festival’ on Saturday 26 October 2019.

We were invited along to set up a stall and power a Coffee Van with our fuel cell stack. It was a great day with a very large turnout of eager learners. This was especially impressive as true to British weather- it was raining very heavily most of the day!

The weather didn’t stop all the lovely visitors from coming to our stall to learn about greener energy options.
It was a very busy day with lots of interest from both children and adults.

The festival had everything from ‘farty foods’ to a working Victorian steam engine- truly appreciating gases in all its forms. We had a great time, talked to so many children and adults alike and had some great feedback too!
