Back to Meet the Makers

BioBus

Exhibit

The BioBus is a high-tech science lab on wheels powered by renewable energy! Come see how solar panels, a wind turbine and waste vegetable oil can power an incredible hands-on science experience.


BioLite

Exhibit

BioLite develops and manufactures advanced energy products that make cooking with wood as clean, safe, and easy as modern fuels while also providing electricity to charge small devices like cell phones and LED lights off-grid. Headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, the company was founded in 2009 by Jonathan Cedar and Alec Drummond.

Brown Dog Solar

Exhibit

A Milwaukee startup focusing on Solar USB Power. We ran a wildly successful Kickstart for our Folding USB Solar Cells. At our booth we'll be showing off our solar USB charging solutions and setups. We believe that our solar cells are the perfect item for campers, hikers, and emergency preparedness.


Build An Energy Scooter with PS 107

Presenter

Fourth and fifth grade students at PS 107 have built scooters from scratch and designed devices to capture and harness the scooters' energy when they are ridden. Come to our presentation and we will share our designs with you.

Electricity on Tap: Emergency & Supplemental Power

Exhibit

Use Electric Vehicle (EV) technology and Arduino controls to dramatically reduce the economic and environmental impact of using emergency power generators to compensate for saturated, unreliable, or nonexistent power grids.


Energy on Tap: Emergency and Supplemental Power

Presenter

Wider adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles is bringing advances to electricity storage, charging technology and generator management . I'll explain how these technologies can be applied outside just transportation, with applications from urban to rural, overpopulated to the barely inhabited.nI'll describe the enabling technologies and the tools we developed for Electricity Storage applications, particularly our Arduino- and internet-enabled CANbus controller library and device configuration files. We aim to jumpstart a development community for electricity storage that lets Makers create new uses for the technology in many situations


Hot Air Engines

Exhibit

A display of low temperature hot air Stirling engines.


IEEE Booth

Exhibit

IEEE is the world's largest electrotechnology organization. A 501(C)3 professional society, its 430,000 members in 160 countries are engineers, scientists, technicians and others teaching and/or working at the cutting edge of technology. We will bring a Smart Grid Demonstration and more.


Lemon Battery

Exhibit

Lara, our 1st grader, wanted to create a science project for her school and wanted to share it with everyone to show how cool and exciting science can be.


Mannahatta2409.org

Exhibit

Mannahatta2409.org is an on-line forum for discovering, designing, and sharing visions of Manhattan's ecology, in a time of changing climate. Come by to create your vision of Manhattan's future!


New Engineering University

Exhibit

New Engineering University (NEU) is a new breed of university for a new breed of engineer. We're announcing NEU along with a host of really exciting partnerships, including the Geena Davis Institute. Geena herself will be part of our team to address how engineering education can and will be re-engineered by NEU.


NYSCI Village: Hands-on Science with Explainers

Exhibit

Explainers will help visitors design their own walk along gliders, demonstrate how to make an air shooter at home, as well as some cool dry ice science. Makers : The NYSCI Explainers


NYSCI Village: Rocket Stage Demos and Performances

Exhibit

Explainers will present Peculiar Density and SciMix--to demonstrate the amazing aspects of density with heavy gas and invisible solids. NYSCI Explainers will also display a variety of science activities.


Pedal Powered Synth

Exhibit

A synthesizer that is powered by your feet


powerwheels fauxrrari

Exhibit

Powerwheels racer Fauxrrari from Sector67 "because growing up is over rated" and no you cant ride because we cant even ride them.


Purina ONE

Exhibit

Visitors to the Purina ONE booth at Maker Faire will have the opportunity to create and invent their own do-it-yourself (DIY) puzzle feeder projects to help enrich the feeding experiences of their cats; gather inspiration from the DIY wall u2013 a gallery of projects created from Purina ONE's cat community; and interact with a fun and shareable area at the booth. What you feed your cat is just as important as HOW you feed your cat. Cats are designed to hunt for their food, and while domestic cats have it much easier they still benefit from the stimulation that comes from the hunt. Incorporating a puzzle feeder in addition to a bowl encourages your cat to work for her food, stimulating her mind and body and helping her live her True Nature.


Teslatronix- Tesla power for the masses

Exhibit

Boasting one of the most simple Tesla coil driving circuits ever, TT makes wireless electricity experimentation simple, easy, and cheap for everyone.


The KidWind Project

Exhibit

The KidWind Project presents the Wind Turbine Blade Challenge! This hands-on activity is about making turbine blades out of cardboard and paper plates, engineering and designing blades that spin effectively in the wind. rn
