Meet the Clubhouse Community – Ryan
Ryan is one of our regular Clubhouse members. He’s 10 years old, and attends Gowrie Primary School. We caught up with Ryan to chat about what he likes about the Computer Clubhouse.
Why do you come to the Clubhouse?
I come to the Clubhouse because I have access to the 3D printer and I’m bored at home. I also come to socialise in person and on the Clubhouse Village.
What’s your favourite thing to use at the Clubhouse? My favourite thing to use is the 3D printer because I can make awesome things. I’ve made Minecraft gear, a truck, a boat, a Pacman ghost and other stuff. I also really like the LittleBits kit, because I’ve got access to computers at home, but not robotics. My favourite thing I’ve made with the LittleBits is the ‘Crawler’, a small remote control, all terrain vehicle.
What’s the best thing you’ve created so far?
One of my favourite things was the challenge to make 50 household objects, set by Lach, out of Lego. My favourite object was the fridge with opening doors and an ice and water dispenser. Some of the other objects I had to make included a tree house, piano and TV with surround sound. I really like Lego because you can build whatever you want.
What’s something new you’d like to see the Clubhouse get?
I would love a bigger 3D printer because we only have a mini one. I want to be able to print bigger versions of all the stuff I make. I made a 3D printed paddle boat that runs on a wind up rubberband, and I’d really like to make a bigger one.
