Don’t Forget Your Camera: Lessons Learned in Documentation

Presenter

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.

Dumpster + Design = Home Sweet Home

Presenter

How do we equip the current generation with the sustainability skills they need to address the 'grand challenges' such as climate change? We think hands-on, design-centered challenges are the key - and that's why we got a used dumpster. From design to implementation, students will use innovative math and science curricula to help Professor Dumpster transform the barely habitable garbage container into a sustainable house and interactive teaching lab. Professor Dumpster will need all the help he can get because he's about to make the dumpster his new home address!
