The Quantum Technology Club is a ‘maker’ club, ‘hacker’ club, ‘makerspace’, ‘hackspace’, ‘amateur radio club’, call it what you will. Read on and discover more about this exciting new club and why you should join today.
There is a growing interest in technology from an amateur and hobby perspective, not just amongst young people but right across the age range.
There are many aspects of technology that are enjoyed by amateurs and hobbyists, they include: electronics, computer coding, wireless technologies, amateur radio, Raspberry Pi, Arduino and techno-crafting (3D printing, laser cutting, programmable embroidery, vinyl cutting, etc.).
Whilst there are organisations in the big cities (Liverpool, Manchester, Preston, etc.) that cater for amateur and hobby technologists, but there’s very few places for them to practice and hone their skills, learn new ones and meet with others to share knowledge outside these areas. So we formed the Quantum Amateur Radio & Technology Society to serve those with a passion for technology primarily in Sefton and West Lancashire; though you are more than welcome to join us if you are outside this area if you share our passion for technology.
We run two technology groups; one for young folk (aged 9-16) called the Quantum Code Club and one for everyone else (aged 16+) called the Quantum Technology Club.
The Quantum Technology Club exists to enable members to:
- Learn about technology
- Share technology with other members
- Experiment with technology
- Make technical things
- Enthuse other members
- Share technology with the public
