Get started with Invent-abling – Smart Materials sets for makers of all ages!

Presenter

What does it mean to enable inventiveness through craft? Invent-abling sets try to answer this question by combining, electronics, smart materials, and other inventive materials with craft techniques. Each part of the set can be added to your personal maker toolkit, reused to make several awesome interactive projects. In this demo founder, Deren Guler, will walk you through a few basic projects in the Activating Origami Set and Smart Sewing Set and show you how to combine them with other parts. After the demo you can pick up your own sets at the Invent-abling booth and turn your home into invention studio!




Cases for Makerspaces

Presenter

Explore how Maker Ed's vision of "Every Child a Maker" extends to providing more opportunities for youth in a surprising variety of makerspaces. All children, who are all born makers, deserve and need time and places to play, learn, and make. We will discuss ways of starting, share a a large variety of examples and makerspace types, from the traditional to non-traditional. Together, let's make the case for making space.



Learn to Prototype Projects and Applications with the LaunchPad Ecosystem

Presenter

The LaunchPad Ecosystem from Texas Instruments allows makers to rapidly prototype projects and applications using affordable modular hardware powered by TI technology. TI has one of the largest portfolios of embedded processing, analog, and wireless integrated circuits and you can use LaunchPad to start evaluating these parts for your next project. The Energia IDE allows makers to quickly create code to run on the LaunchPads and drive BoosterPack plug-in modules. Quickly add WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, sensors, displays, LEDs, and more to your LaunchPad project to create demonstrations of home automation, motor control, and dynamic lighting.




Maker Air Demonstration

We are all designers; join us in repurposing household items to build an imaginative mechanism to meet a challenge while using NYSCI's design process.



Flight Demonstration

Presenter

It was once said, ''what goes up must come down''. Is this always true? Come learn about what makes hot air balloons, blimps, airplanes and rockets defy the laws of gravity in this demonstration that ends with a bang.

Air Play Demonstration

Presenter

We live in a sea of air, yet we rarely take the time to think of how it affects our lives. Join us as we use air pressure to keep a balloon inflated without tying a knot and crush a water cooler bottle.
