TechResort Encounters (Secondary Age) - 3D Design and Print

Posted on behalf of TechResort CIC

3D printing technology is becoming more widely available but it's not just a case of sending a file to a printer.

Design for 3D printing is a skill which you can learn at this series of hands-on, weekly workshops.

We'll use Microsoft's 3D builder software to design small objects for 3D printing with TechResort's printers.  After you've learned the basics, there will be design challenges for you to try.

This programme is part of TechResort's residency at Hastings Library and funded by Hastings Opportunity Area.

The sessions are suitable for young people aged 11 and over and must be booked in advance to ensure we can accommodate you.

We use printed learning material with a mixture of text, pictures and diagrams and the workshops are mostly self-guided, at your own pace,  but with TechResort Elves on hand if you get stuck.

The sessions will run on Monday:  28th January, 4th & 11th February from 4.30pm to 6.00pm.

TechResort Encounters (Secondary) - Getting to Grips with Raspberry Pi

Posted on behalf of TechResort CIC

Raspberry Pi computers are tiny single board, but fully functional, computers.  They were designed to get more people rolling up their sleeves and learning a bit more about what goes on in a computer.

Come and join us at Hastings Library as part of our Hastings Opportunity Area funded residency for 6 after-school sessions which will get you more hands-on with this incredibly versatile pint-sized computer.

No experience is needed, we'll have self-guided activities with text, diagrams and pictures to help you get started and as you delve deeper you can try some challenges such as programming the Pi as a camera, music creation and games programming.

Sessions are designed for young people aged 11 and older and this programme is a set of six workshops on the following dates:

25th February, 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th March and 1st April.

Sessions run from 4.30pm to 6.00pm in Hastings Library.

Go and See

Posted on behalf of Vanessa Hughes

You may have noticed a new board on display in Zone 6 of AHH - Meet the Digital Service User Research Team, and hopefully you got the postcard i sent you?

I recently joined DfT as a Digital Service User Researcher based in Hastings - the rest of my team being in Windsor House. 

Coming from a background as a continuous improvement (CI) practitioner my favourite buzz word :) is Gemba!  because my favourite CI activity was to 'go and see' what my colleagues were actually doing, talking about, using, creating………It was the best way for me to understand if what I was doing was relevant and useful; and most importantly for finding out what I didn't know.. I didn't know.

Of course I had worked in my last department for 15 years so I was familiar with all aspects of the business and knew someone in every role who's brain I could pick if I needed to…….as a newbie in DfT I'm gathering bits and bobs of info on the different teams/roles as I go but not necessarily from the horse's mouth, and it takes a while to piece everything together.

As a Hastings Ambassador I'm also keen to learn more about what goes on in my neck of the woods, and to be able to represent and share 2-way information across sites. As part of these 'go and see' sessions I can give a brief introduction to the UR board and you could let me know if there is information you would like to see in future.

In my role I'm researching the introduction and improvement of tools and services for everyone; I've joined groups and activities which will help me get to know more people and roles over time. To do the best job I can in researching user needs, and representing those needs with real context I'd like to spend some time with as many teams/roles as I can.

I can't lie, I'll probably have a few questions to ask, but these are not formal sessions that need to be planned or polished, I won't stop you from getting on with what you need to do, and you can always ask me to leave if it becomes inconvenient! -  I'll really just observing what goes on in Gemba………………..

                                              Japanese script meaning gemba

Gemba in its original Japanese meaning means “The Real Place”. In business the term is often used in contexts of decision making or improvement, taken to mean the place where the value is created.

 Gemba can also be understood in context of “san gen shugi” (Three real philosophy). The three philosophies    are:

                             The Real Place. (Being present “in-real-life” rather than in virtual reality)

                             The Real Thing. (Rather than a picture)

                             Realistic Action. (Making plans practical instead of idealistic)


If you/your team would be happy for me to visit but can't do the dates shown please contact me and i'll be happy to arrange another suitable time.

Seeding A women only dance for Imbolc

Posted on behalf of Sarah Bullock

Ceremonial creative dance for Imbolc for those identifying as women only.

Dancing with the triple Goddess Brigit we welcome the wild card of Aquarius. Brigit heals, inspires and shapes the new.

Imbolc is a time of seeding prayers and wishes as we look to shape the coming months, a time where the snow drops begin to show their faces through the cold winter earth seeking the sun.

Through this dance we will tend our own well and feed our own internal fire with all that nourishes us to move forward whilst still cloaked in the warm mantle of the winter frosts. We dance with the dreamtime, we evoke our passions and lay down our seeds of intention.

Expect to move, be moved, to create and to create space for the new....

Bring water and layers
