Electronics Meets Mobile World

MakerSense is a Geekulcha Maker initiative where students meet to connect, learn, share and put skills to real use with and build electronics systems solutions. Every month, a topic of focus is chosen and Makers build projects/solutions based on the topic.

This is the spirit!

Learn how to develop a mobile app that connect to electronics hardware. Everything is getting smarter and we are behind the Master Plans, let's Make.

It's about Collaboration and Co-creation. Together we make light work and it's fun when we do it together

In this growing world, it's all about the BIG 4 phenomenons: Cloud Computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
