Powered by PepsiCo, BEVLAB at Maker Faire is a pop-up lab that mixes hands-on experimentation with moderated discussions, and a sampling station. It is designed to spark discussion around the future of beverages and give makers of all kinds a hands-on opportunity to experience the future of beverage creation.
Participants will experience the lab in groups starting with a short moderated discussion (BEVFORUM) around the future of beverages. After the discussion, the group will be randomly assigned to one of four experiments in which they will receive instruction and be allowed to make their own future beverage concept.

Create costumes out of unexpected materials - paper, plastic, coffee filters, and more. Turn flat materials into 3D works of art. Design on our mannequins, on your friend, or on yourself. What would you want to wear?
Let's try Japanese traditional craft-making with Bengala eco-dyeing, it's just like playing with mud! Bengala is an earth-based textile dye made from soil, uses very little water, and is environmentally safe and fun to use.
Public Lab functions as a learning, living network of people who collaborate to make environmental research accessible and affordable. Hardware, software, datasets and environmental victories emerge from our social infrastructure for public research. We work online to build a global knowledge base for environmental investigation fueled by place-specific research conducted offline by local chapters. No finite amount of people could tackle a project this big--open source collaboration provides a way of working and making that enables everyone to grow their own capacity to act.nThis presentation will be given by a Public Lab Director.

Biology teachers and students have struggled to express the inner workings of the cell with more than words. If only there was a model for that!! For my students have taught me that hands-on activities are more effective when the manipulatives are designed with rigor in mind u2013 "minds on" to maximize learning, understanding and retention. I will model the maker approach to teaching challenging concepts in biology, and inspire learners to use current models or make their own, using 3D kits/3D printed models to demonstrate the cool yet mysterious processes of life as well as show off students' maker model projects.
