Eoin Jordan, The Digital Maker
Eoin is a software and electronics engineer with ReThink Waste. He has a passion for recycling and upcycling old electronic equipment in order to give components and hardware a new lease of life. eWaste is the fastest growing waste stream in the world as we ignore the fact that smart devices such as phones and tablets are full of expensive materials including rare metals and gold that can be harvested rather than having to continue to cause ecological destruction by mining and deforestation.
A mentor in 3D printing, electronics and coding, Eoin wants to train people in the digital maker skills necessary to be able to repair, reuse, recycle and upcycle tablets, computers and other smart devices
