Cucumbers are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to veggies that can be transformed into tasty pickled treats. In this hands-on workshop, Kelly McVicker of McVicker Pickles will show you how to make delicious pickles at home. After a quick demo of the steps involved in making both fermented and vinegar-brined pickles, we'll get to chopping. As we work, we'll talk about flavor combinations, how to experiment with new recipes without compromising food safety, and how to incorporate pickles into your meals.
Dutch based designer Anouk Wipprecht works in the emerging field of "Fashionable Technology"; a rare combination of sartorial knowhow combined with engineering smarts and style, she has in a very short period created an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way. She creates technological couture; with background in fashion design combined with engineering, science and interaction design, she creates systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence; projected as 'host' systems on the human body, her designs move, breath, and react to the environment around them.

Have you thought about implementing maker programs in your library? Idaho Commission for Libraries is supporting the implementation of makerspaces in eleven public libraries across the state in year two of the project. The project includes training on tools & technology, leveraging partnerships, involving community, and evaluating outcomes. The results include formal & stealth programming incorporating engineering, robotics, 3D printing & other STEAM topics to draw community members into these innovative programs and spaces! Come discover what Idaho is doing, what we are learning, and what's next.
What impact will real-time consumer feedback have on manufacturing? Mickey McManus will talk about building a 3D printer that makes customized OREO cookies on the fly. Microfactories hooked into the social network may soon revolutionize making.
At DIY Tea Blending, you will learn how to craft your very own tea blend utilizing your senses of smell and taste. Christopher Coccagna, Certified Tea Specialist, and Master Tea Blender for T-WE TEA will teach you about tea then turn you loose!
Explore how students become engaged with scientific and engineering practices in the Sanger Community Science Workshop, a free drop-in science workshop offered during out-of-school time. Students become 'Makers' and develop a project vision, and then work to realize that vision using a modified engineering design process. nParticipants will build simple projects from recycled materials while learning how to effectively teach and model science and engineering practices. Examples will be also be modeled and highlighted showing the intersection between making and the Next Generation Science Standards.
HexLab Makerspace is the newest makerspace in Los Angeles. We offer access to creative technologies such as 3D printers/scanners, laser cutters, mold making, resin & metal casting, vinyl cutting and large-format printing.
Carl Bass is CEO of 3D design and engineering software company Autodesk. Bass is a maker and spends his spare time building things—from chairs and tables to boats, and most recently, an electric go-kart. He'll talk about the tools that anyone can use to bring their ideas into the physical world--from CAD software to rapid prototyping by 3D printer to CNC.n
Not Impossible believes in technology for the sake of humanity. Our most recent project, Project Daniel, used 3D printers to make prosthetic arms and hands for children of war in Sudan. #HelpOneHelpMany
Modio, it's the new app that lets you design & customize incredible creatures and turn them into toys using a desktop 3D printer. Easy to use drag and drop functionality lets you build creatures, characters and constructs free-form or from pre-designed templates. Customization features including surface textures let you personalize your creation and then, with the press of a button, your parts are magically sorted by color and prepped to print. So the app is fun but the outcome is also outstanding. With Modio, you get to play! These creations are printed bit by bit and designed to snap together and provide some pretty amazing pose-ability.
Engine is about five and half feet long and 27'' wide. It has two cars, each 30'' long and 27'' wide with about 14 inches for the hitch assembly for each. So, overall length is about 13 feet. It's red and black with gold trim.
