Emily believes that every person is a creative superhero. In her presentation, she will tell the stories of her students who range from ages 8 to 18, and how they used design and building projects to reimagine their own futures and communities. These projects include 10-year-old girls learning to weld, 8th graders CNC-cutting 900 pieces of wood to build their own school library, high school students erecting a farmers market for their small town that would create 4 new businesses and 15 jobs.
Have you thought about implementing maker programs in your library? Idaho Commission for Libraries is supporting the implementation of makerspaces in eleven public libraries across the state in year two of the project. The project includes training on tools & technology, leveraging partnerships, involving community, and evaluating outcomes. The results include formal & stealth programming incorporating engineering, robotics, 3D printing & other STEAM topics to draw community members into these innovative programs and spaces! Come discover what Idaho is doing, what we are learning, and what's next.
Mark Frauenfelder, the editor-in-chief of MAKE, and his 11-year-old daughter Jane, will present projects from his new book, Maker Dad: Lunch Box Guitars, Antigravity Jars, and 22 Other Incredibly Cool Father-Daughter DIY Projects.
I teach a maker after school program at Science World, in Vancouver, Canada. Inspired by that work, I've spent the past two years researching the common habits, attitudes, and skills of the maker community, so that I can teach them in my class. I will share the results of my research and talk about my experience putting them into practice.
I am building a fully-functional turret from the video game ''Portal 2'' and plan to complete it by April 1st. In my presentation, I will demonstrate the turret's capabilities, including motion detection and tracking, shooting Nerf darts, and retractable side panels. I will also talk about the building process and show photos and video. I will show that anyone can make things, even without a ''real'' workshop. I use commonly available tools like a screwdriver and drill, and a soldering iron to assemble the electronics, which are programmed with the free Arduino compiler.
In this presentation, I will demonstrate the process behind making homemade fermented Sriracha hot sauce, covering the basic science behind lacto-fermentation in addition to the the step-by-steps of the recipe. I'll potentially include a hands-on component to the presentation, so guests will be able to take home a jar of peppers to turn into hot sauce once they have been fermented.
Student original projects created from the Thymio Robot, 3-D printed parts, Little Bits and zany materials to create prototypes of invention. Each work was created by students to solve a problem.

Project-based learning is an educational innovation by which a few undergraduate engineering programs (at Olin College, Harvey Mudd College, Iron Range Engineering in Minnesota, and at Arizona State's College of Technology and Innovation) have committed to integration hands-on experiences and building projects into every year of their engineering curricula.nThe Carnegie Foundation's book Educating Engineers: Designing for the Future of the Field, by Sheri Sheppard et al., champions project-based learning (and hands-on making and building) as the progressive direction collegiate engineering programs need to go in order to make successful gradu
Are Makers the engineers of the future? With support from the National Science Foundation, Arizona State researchers are interviewing selected Makers about educational experiences around engineering and related activities.
