The Hewitt School is a K-12 girls school. Our computer science classes emphasize meaningful applications of programming and robotics. Students use GoGo Boards and Arduinos to solve compelling problems that they care about.
Of all the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, one of the easiest to prepare for is the creation of your next project. Like every such event, you should have lots of pictures of the process and your only chance is now. After making the novice mistakes of relying on fuzzy photographs of a (temporarily) working circuit with an iPhone 2G and arranging for people to demonstrate a piece without taking lighting into account, Elizabeth wants to spare you the same agonies. Learn why, what, and how to document your next great project. Elizabeth will share opportunities missed, lessons learned, specific tips for documenting your next great project.
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.
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
Explorers Wanted. Only 5% of what lives in the oceans has been discovered, yet oceans cover 70% of the earth. We make cost effective underwater tools that allows anyone to search down to 9,000ft without getting wet. Join us
FlowX26 is a life-size version of the mobile app Flow Free. Instead of connecting circles using your finger, people will be walking on tiles that will light up. The game board is an interactive platform that reacts to steps.
We support ingenuity and the thinkers who use "remaking" to fulfill an individual vision, not only with the Ford Connect, but with anything that can be transformed to support a personal lifestyle, hobby or home business. Visit us at moversandmakers.tumblr.com.
