Connected Exploration: Makers are the New Explorers of the Universe!

Presenter

Over the past few years, the Maker Movement has created a whole suite of low-cost exploration tools (drones, ROVs, satellites, sensors) that rival the expensive, commercial counterparts. Along with trends in citizen science, this is reshaping the process of science and discovery, especially in fields that can benefit from large, public participation. It's more than just garage tinkering - makers are taking their tools into the natural and physical world. It's curiosity gone wild!

Serious Robots on a Budget

Presenter

This presentation will outline how to create robots with a purpose for less then you'd ever imagine. Cost cutting strategies such as repurposing common materials, using parts from old, broken or discarded appliances, and online bargain resources will be discussed. Examples of actual, functional ''budget'' parts, such as linear slides, will be revealed. Presentation by Ben Hylak (White House Science Fair 2012, invited by both Make and Broadcom, Disney Peer Mentor 2014, and 5-time blue ribbon winner at NYC Maker Fair 2011).
