Complete Beginner’s Intro to Electronics Prototyping


Suitable for ages 7+. No electronic skills required. No soldering involved. Hand out to each participant (limit ~100) packs containing instructions & parts (solderless breadboard, batteries, and some electronic parts). I will perform step-by-step live demo, building a simple but flexible electronic circuit (LED flasher). If time allows,do a few mods to show its flexibility: n* Mod #1: replace LED with orange, yellow, or green LED.n* Mod #2: white LED - using 4 batteries.n* Mod #3: metronome -- add speakern* Mod #4: audio oscillator (Voltage/current/resistance/light to frequency converter)n* and many more!

Makers @ MIT: Admitting & Empowering Technically Creative Students


The Massachusetts Institute Technology (MIT) has a long legacy of admitting and supporting students with significant technical creativity.
Join Chris Peterson, Assistant Director for Talented Outreach to Makers, Entrepreneurs, and Academic Superstars at MIT's Office of Admissions, as he describes the MIT Admissions Maker Portfolio, as well as the elements of the Institute which empower makers once they arrive on campus.

e-NABLE – using 3D printing to give the World a ”Helping Hand.”


Since its creation, E-nable has sought to improve the design of the Robohand prototype, creating solutions for problems with the current designs and enabling people to create them on their own with guidance from the group. We seek to come up with designs that cut costs as much as possible so that more people will have access to these devices. The Makerfaire is a great opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and potential collaborators to continue to develop these life-changing devices that empower people in need and their families.
