Technology is not just computers! Natural materials like stones, bugs, wasp nests, clay, and flowers have been used from ancient times to today for paint, food, makeup, and textiles. Learn about pigments, history and art. Tur
We are bringing color to the 3D printing experience. Color-morphing plastic responds to heat; Decapede electronics drive up to 10 extruders; and bold casing colors could broaden the appeal of having a 3D printer in your home
How to convert used cooking oil into fuel for use inrnunmodified diesel engines, modified heating oil burners, and tuned turbine engines. As well as how to make your own processor using commonly available hardware.
Air pollution harms millions of people and shortens lives. Technology & Maker efforts now let people, not just governments, develop & deploy their own monitors. Learn why you'd want to measure air pollution and see current examples.
Meet the Makers of NYSCI and learn about the design and DiY-focused programs we run year-round. Make your own instrument, glider or under water robot. Play with perspective. Design with motion. Encounter robotic insects.
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.
Public Lab is a community which develops and applies open-source tools to environmental exploration and investigation. We will be demoing tools such as low cost spectrometers and near-infrared cameras.
This panel will focus on the work of Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science (Public Lab), an open-source hardware and software research and development community. It is a community of educators, technologists, scientists and community organizers interested in new ways to promote action, intervention and awareness through a participatory research model. Public Lab staff will discuss how the community got started, what the community is, and how members are making and using Do-It-Yourself research tools and organizers will discuss local projects they are working on with Public Lab tools.
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.
We are the 2013 Stanford-Brown IGEM team, based at NASA-Ames in California. We specialize in NASA-related projects, with a focus on engineering microbes to aid with future space exploration and potential colonization.
