A <===> Makerfest <===> was organized at Lycée Technique ESCH/ALZETTE on 04-07-2017. Over 1.000 persons, apparently 2.000 expected, were present on the second Makerfest at LTESCH (Luxembourg), organized by BEECREATIVE, Service National de la Jeunesse, SCRIPT. Lots of different schools from around the country were present with their students (learners) from any age! As presenters of THEIR MakerSpaces and/or as visitors to take part in the many offered “ateliers”. From 3D Printing, Laser cutting, Green Screen video recordings, Fidget-Spinners making (THAT was THE HIT!), coding with Scratch, LEGO MINDSTORMS and NOT to forget <===> KNIWWELINO <===> a NEW project created by LIST (Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology) who was specially developed to meet the needs of coding for youth!
It was a pleasure to see with HOW MANY fun the kids and teens were “making” and LEARNing 😉 IF THAT isn’t the future, WHAT else! 😉 I wish I would be that young again to visit such schools 😉

Hackerspaces-SYN2CAT-LEVEL2

syn2cat-level2-georges-kesseler-10-10-2016.

Today on 10-10-2016 I visited THE pioneer of the Hackerspaces in Luxembourg-City <===> https://level2.lu/ <===> and I was heartily welcomed by Georges KESSELER, the president of this Non-profit Hackerspace (ONG). As already mentioned, I said pioneer, THIS place was the first in Luxembourg. Georges proudly showed me the rooms with ALSO professional explications about the realized projects and what fore THIS place is..

.

A “Hackerspace” is a place where people with similar interests in technology, science, art, culture, and making meet. Activities are not in the slightest restricted to only computer science, but also emerge from electronics, contemporary art, photography, and any and all other pursuits worth sharing. The hackerspace offers a turnkey infrastructure to its members where innovative projects that would not come to life in a garage, can find nourishment and support.

Let us talk ALSO about WHAT THAT term of “Hacking” means actually as it is often misunderstood. “Hacking” doesn’t mean ONLY hacking a computer etc., even there is a difference between “Ethical Hacking” (White Hat Hackers) and “Criminal Hacking” (Black Hat Hackers). It refers ALSO to transform something from its ORIGIN meant use to a different one; so TODAY we speak about “Life-Hacks“, “Kitchen-Hacks“, “Cooking Hacks“, “Beauty Hacks“, “Electronic Hacks“, etc.

Some examples for BETTER understanding:


The Interview

Concerning the questions and answers WE will use initials such as:

  • [GM] for Gust MEES
  • [GK] for Georges KESSELER

book-question-mark[GM] I first was asking Georges [GK] WHAT he would like to have as a message from the content of THIS interview. He told me that probably the MOST important would be to find NEW active members able to run projects together with others. As a reminder: The Hackerspace “LEVEL2” is working on the “Open Source Mentality“, read Linux community; there are NO Windows computers and/or devices present. THEY hack around the “RaspBerry PI” ALSO. It’s a “Learning-By-Doing” community, Geeks, and NOT a “Repair shop” for computers as certain people thought it is…

Questions:

  • [GM] How many members do You have?
    • [GK] WE have about 60 members actually.
  • [GM] WHEN did YOUR “ONG” Non-Profit Club got founded?
    • [GK] WE started about 2009 in STRASSEN and moved to Luxembourg-City in 2014 where WE are located now.
  • [GM] WHAT’S the origin of YOUR name “SYN2CAT”?
    • [GK] Read it as “Syndicate”; it’s actually, as it is a Linux community, a derive from the “TCP protocol” where “syn” and “cat” are UNIX and LINUX commands and/or part from a protocol.
  • [GM] WHAT’S the origin of the name “LEVEL2”?
    • [GK] Well, WE are located on the level two in the building 😉 AND ALSO as it is OUR second “Hackerspace” as THE one in STRASSEN closed!
  • [GM] HOW do YOU get financed as a Non-Profit Club?
    • [GK] WE live through the membership fees and some donations.

[GM] Check ALSO the “FAQ’s” please:

https://wiki.hackerspace.lu/wiki/Join!

  • [GM] You are located in the “House of Youth”, “Maison de la Jeunesse”<===> http://maison-jeunesse.lu/, this shows the confidence and importance THEY give to YOUR club. Do YOU have to pay any rent?
    • [GK] We get part of the rent sponsored…
  • [GM] Well, lucky-wise some money that YOU don’t have to spend and which helps a lot to survive. SO, HOW are YOUR projects get financed THEN!?
    • [GK] There are different ways. For private (own) projects: you can use the infrastructure. For Community project you can get full financing:  This funding method is also used for equipment acquisition (video projector, 3D printer)…
  • [GM] Was YOUR initiative as a Hackerspace the ORIGIN of “Makerspaces” in Luxembourg?
    • [GK] YES! One of OUR members, Marc TEUSCH iniated them.

[GM] I have seen a video of Marc TEUSCH on a TEDxLuxembourg presentation WHERE You can find it on my blog <===> https://gustmees.wordpress.com/2014/08/20/maker-space-a-new-trend-in-education-and-a-big-responsibility/

[GM] Marc TEUSCH, WHO is teaching in ETTELBRUCK (Luxembourg) created FIRST Makerspace in Luxembourg (March 6, 2013):

I made ALSO an interview with the responsible people of the EDUcation for “Makerspaces” in Luxembourg and I visited the The flagship makerspace of the national Youth Service SNJ “BASE 1” at Forum Geesseknäppchen in Luxembourg-City. Please check below:

syn2cat-level2-georges-kesseler-10-10-2016The author Georges KESSELER (a.k.a. Gunstick) is president of syn2cat asbl, moderates the club’s monthly Lët’z Hack radioshow and is also involved in the recently created HaxoGreen asbl organizing an outdoor hacker event every 2 years. He is a big fan of retro computing and chiptunes having lived himself the era of Amiga and Atari ST and acquired a multitude of skills through self teaching from 3D design over workbench skills to micro-controller programming. In his rare spare time he invites fellow hackers to join into his muscle hacker (think: yoga) sessions or goes on vacation for some extreme roller coaster rides. He likes to give other people insight in his vast know-how on a very large spectrum of subjects. From circus arts over astronomy and laser graffiti to geocaching. You can find him on Facebook and twitter.
