Hot Air Engines

Exhibit

A display of low temperature hot air Stirling engines.


How Making Helps Us Learn to Realize Empathy

Presenter

We often think that making is a means to an end, a way to produce an artifact. But the attitude and the process that drives the making is just as important as the product. This is especially so once you realize that the attitude and process that facilitates a smooth making process parallels that which empowers us to realize our empathy in relation to other people.


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.


Jay

Exhibit

Jay is a character who functions as a first aid caddy, providing basic tools & supplies for emergency care education to children.


Kaleidoscope Learning Center

Exhibit

Kaleidoscope Learning Center is the exciting place for life-long learning in Northwest New Jersey. Join in the fun as we discover, create and innovate with kids and adults.


KARTS for Vets – Kinect and Arduino Rehab System

Exhibit

A Microsoft Kinect and Arduino based rehabilitation system to help injured veterans in physical therapy. A hardware-software prototype, with feedback to power limb movement and exercises at home in a game like fashion,


Learn Electronics by Doing Kits

Exhibit

Fully Functioning Oscilloscope consisting of an array of 240 LEDs plus a test signal board used for a hands-on kit to teach Electronics from basic physics to programming a microprocessor. Also displaying a Giant HexBug.


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.


Low-Cost Brain Monitoring for Hobbyists Using EEG

Exhibit

We will exhibit designs for and demonstrate $30 electroencephalogram (EEG) brain-monitoring devices hobbyists can use to conduct neuroscience work. Children can build a model neuron from pipe cleaners and LEDs.


Low-Cost Neural Monitoring for Makers: Bringing EEG to the Citizen Scientist

Presenter

Serious neuroscience may appear to be beyond the reach of the maker community, the intelligent citizen-scientist with no formal training, and under-resourced schools or science clubs. Enabling the Maker community to conduct useful neuroscience research and use signals from the brain--such as that generated by electroencephalography (EEG)--to drive vehicles, control avatars, and conduct brain research is very important for science education. Here, we will discuss and demonstrate multiple devices currently in development that can monitor brain states for about $30. The community can contribute to their design and testing at a website.


MakerNurse: The Stealth Ingenuity of Inventive Nurses in America

Presenter

Nurses, the ultimate Medical Makers, are creating advanced devices, new ways of caring for patients, and everyday health hacks that save lives. The Maker Movement can learn from the past and the future of nurse inventions and find opportunities for affordable prototyping. Lori Melichar of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Jose Gomez-Marquez of Little Devices Lab at MIT discuss the impact of inventive fabrication by nurses in America. They are bringing together Makers and nurses around the country; celebrating and equipping inventive nurses in clinics and hospitals to make health care in America more affordable, inventive and effective.


Making & Inspiring Science (Things Will Go Boom)

Presenter

"Science Bob" Pflugfelder is on a mission to help make science come alive. He is an award-winning elementary school teacher and the resident science teacher on Jimmy Kimmel Live.His experiments have also been featured in several magazines including Popular Science and Wired.nDuring Science Bob's presentation, he would showcase one or more of his experiments, highlight some of the gadgets and contraptions featured in his upcoming middle grade book series Nick & Tesla and answer any questions from the audience..nWith the large number of families that attend Maker Faire, Science Bob's presentation would be geared towards a younger audience.


Making Sense of Air Sensing

Presenter

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.


Making Space: NASA’s Call to Action for Makers Who Want to Explore the Universe

Presenter

NASA's grand challenge: find all asteroid threats to human population and know what to do about them. Unlike traditional missions, this grand challenge is driven by the idea that protecting our planet is an issue bigger than any one program, mission or country. It is something that will take all of us to solve. These public-private partnerships represent a new way of doing business for NASA and a call to action for Makers: join us to become a critical part of the future of space exploration.


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!


ManyLabs: Sensors for Education

Exhibit

We will show an automated plant growing system, classroom physics sensors, wind and solar energy projects, water quality sensors, air quality sensors, magnetic field visualizations, and a DIY spectrophotometer.


MapperBot

Exhibit

Gotham laboratories has designed a quad coptor based robot that will autonomously map the surface of a mock asteroid.
