If you're up for a stocking filler, (only 300 days to Christmas!), or just want to encourage a young (or old) inventor, this is one of our favourite products. Sugru is a product that's hard to explain. They call it 'mouldable glue'. Think blu-tack that sets to a silicone rubber. This means that if you can make something out of play-doh, you're qualified to use this, and what you create is not only flexible and impact-resistant, but also temperature resistant as well, as silicone rubber is the substance used to make the modern rubberised style of oven mitt. Create grips for cables, protective bumpers for phones, wheels for your next robot, and much more. From only £15 for a multi-colour 8-pack, it's cheap enough to buy a pack just to play with. https://sugru.com
More Tech Campers 3D Printing NHS Face Shields
We keep hearing from more campers who have built 3D printers with us over the last few years how they're helping out their local hospitals and care staff. This one from Rémi who built a printer with us 3 years ago ...
"I’m making face shields for all our local medical staff. I’ve made 600 since the start of this pandemic with my Anet A8, which I built at one of your camps 3 years ago. All my stock went to Nice hospitals in France because I live over there. Thanks for all you guys did to teach me 3D printing skills!"
Well-done, Rémi - it's great to see young people like you using their skills to help others in this time of crisis. Great job!
