In this episode we talk to Mark Pickering from Jellylab (UCD). Co-hosts are Tomas Ward and Vicky Twomey-Lee. Mark is no stranger to Dublin Maker festival and also was one of our Maker-a-Day during Science Week 2020

We will be talking about how anyone can be a researcher at home and behind the scenes on how Mark and his team of researchers use accessible materials for their their research, his philosophy of punk rock regarding to his research – “punk microscopy”, experiences from all their Maker creations implemented in their labs. We gushed about LEGO and 3D printers. Of course, the fun you have when making and experimenting, and it doesn’t have to be expensive.
