Back to Meet the Makers

A Structured Approach to Charlieplexing

Presenter

Charlieplexing is a good way to control many LEDs. For small arrays the wiring is simple. Building anything else can get complicated. Splitting an array into a series of smaller ones makes building and programming much easier

Our interactive climbing wall will light up to show you the way to the top and complete the course! Challenge yourself on one of three difficulties!


Broadening Participation through E-Textiles

Presenter

This session examines strategies for broadening participation in the Maker Community through e-textiles, which have sparked the first ever female-dominated electronics hobbyist community around soft circuits.


Build Your Dreams with PLY90

Exhibit

The PLY90 is a connector to build and bring your ideas to life. It's like Lego's for adults.


Build your own BioPrinter for under $150!

Presenter

Bioprinting is printing with biological materials - 3D printing with squishier ingredients! In a BioCurious community project, we're building our own bioprinter from scavenged CD drives, an inkjet cartridge, and an Arduino.


Building with Dog Tech
