dS is a unique project that's part video game, part art installation, part musical instrument, and part immersive science visualization. It brings together scientists and artists who are motivated by a desire to reveal and interpret our connection to the beautiful and subtle microscopic world. And it gives audience members the opportunity to see their own energy field, and use it to dance, sculpt, and play with a simulation of the otherwise invisible atomic world. It is used in public art galleries, schools, and festivals to make serious science seriously fun!
Join us at Gibberish to make silly putty and explore the chemistry of polymers and sublimation! We will be making personalized phone covers (while you wait) and you can shop for handmade science jewelry and clothing gifts.
Tintype Photography from 1851. The first inexpensive art form to capture an image, was the ''Tintype'' photograph. The average person could afford to have their photograph taken ( $.25 - $1.00) and mailed to a loved one.
Yogurt, Greek Yogurt, and Cream Cheese are food products found in every home, but did you know that you can make your own with just a few simple ingredients using cookware around the house? A healthy DIY edible science project for the whole family. I will show you how to take simple ingredients and use cookware already in your house to create the three staples which are not only delicious but healthy and organic. By creating these food products yourself, you will reduce your carbon footprint by sourcing the food right in your kitchen and save money at the same time. This is one science project which is fun and easy....Enjoy!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
