Access Day started bright and early in the labs with an open breakfast in Notting Hill Gate. On display were a range of 3D printed items designed to make everyday tasks easier and support independent living. Meanwhile, in Jersey, the first of ten teams of Barclays Colleagues were gathering to find out how to build a prosthetic hand.
In addition to open sessions sharing tools for accessibility, Bournemouth invited 15 young people from Diverse Abilities to explore the maker space. With the support of local Digital Eagles, Jenna and Farrell, and the labs team each participant designed their own personalised planter and watched it laser cut. Some even had time to create their own seed markers and name badges!
