Public Lab functions as a learning, living network of people who collaborate to make environmental research accessible and affordable. Hardware, software, datasets and environmental victories emerge from our social infrastructure for public research. We work online to build a global knowledge base for environmental investigation fueled by place-specific research conducted offline by local chapters. No finite amount of people could tackle a project this big--open source collaboration provides a way of working and making that enables everyone to grow their own capacity to act.nThis presentation will be given by a Public Lab Director.
Come play with DIY Health Technology made at MITs Little Devices Lab. Devices include: legos detecting virus, Arduino shields for diagnostics, and pop up clinics. We'll bring tools and medical makers and we can make health
Our Tesla coils are a great inexpensive way to start your journey with Nikola Tesla wire energy technology. Low input DC voltages and a low component count make it simple for anyone with a background in electronics to constru
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!
The Apollo missions blazed a path to deep space, and today NASA is working on the next giant leap u2013 our path to Mars. Technology drives exploration, and we're building on the Apollo program's accomplishments to test and fly transformative, cutting edge technologies today for tomorrow's missions. But unlike the Apollo missions, where the public could only watch, we want you to get involved and be a part of the journey.
