DIT (do-it-together) Alternative Energy Grid is a hands-on workshop for makers 6 and over interested in learning how to make an alternative energy generating device or mechanism. This two-evening concept and skill-based workshop invites motivated makers from all backgrounds to collaboratively create a series of diverse sources of energy-generating mechanisms (human-powered, solar, wind, plants, etc.) that pool their power together to create a neighbourhood ‘grid’.
