Lockpick Village – Presented by TOOOL

Exhibit

Want to tinker with locks and tools, the likes of which you've only seen in movies featuring cat burglars or secret agents? Then come to TOOOL's Lockpick Village, where you will learn hands-on how physical security operates.


Major in Making in College

Presenter

We'll talk about how Making has pathways to engineering majors as well as its advantages to becoming technically literate, a benefit for any university student. We'll provide a couple of examples of the type of Making engineering students do in project-based learning engineering programs. PBL is an educational innovation by which a few undergraduate engineering programs (Olin, Harvey Mudd College and ASU's College of Technology and Innovation) have committed to integration hands-on experiences and building projects into 4 years of engineering curricula. This will not be a selling spiel for our ASU program but rather connecting PBL and Making.


Make Anything – Furry Electric Zoo

Exhibit

The Furry Electric Zoo kits use soft circuit projects to teach users basic electronic concepts such as circuit and switch as well as basic sewing skills while encouraging users to create fantastical creatures!

MakeVR – Natural Motion Creation for 3D Print and Modeling

Presenter

Sixense will present MakeVR - a radically fun, easy and powerful way to model objects for 3D print and other uses. MakeVR uses a two-handed interface built around high precision motion tracking technology that allows makers to create very simple and very complex objects with natural hand motions. With MakeVR, you can reach into the creative environment to manipulate shapes, objects and tools. Our talk will demonstrate how we've brought fun to 3D software to let makers build objects ready for print in less time than it takes to complete an introduction class for other modeling products.


Making in the Classroom: Reports from the front lines

Presenter

This panel will gather several outstanding K-12 educators who are using making in their classrooms. We will share some of our favorite student projects and talk about the benefits and challenges of having a makerspace for a classroom.


Mars Rover

Exhibit

An Arduino-based Mars Rover robot built by a father and his two teenage daughters for the New York Hall of Science.


MarshmallowShoooters

Exhibit

Design and build your own marshmallow shooter from precut pvc parts. Test your creation - Hit the Bulls-Eye!! Fun for all ages.


Microsoft

Exhibit

Microsoft provides foundational technologies that allow people to learn new abilities, create new software, and control the emerging world of computer controlled manufacturing devices.

The Microsoft tent at Maker Faire New York will interactively demonstrate how Microsoft technologies and partners help enable people to create "workshops of the future" and realize their full potential as makers. Interactive demonstrations within our tent include easy 3D Printing from Windows 8.1, the touch-friendly programming of TouchDevelop, exciting full-size Boxing Robots, kids creating theatrical animatronic presentations, various microcontrollers, and DIY video games from Project Spark.
