Tangeez are a set of light-up building blocks that change COLOR as you stack them. Circular in shape, individually powered and internally ILLUMINATED, Tangeez are both an interactive toy and design object.rn
Kids of all ages can "play" with electricity with Storefront Science: Make an LED "pet", create illuminated circuit art, or design and build a solar-powered draw-bot.
The roots of MAKE are also the core values of the 20+ year old Clubhouse culture--learning fueled by interest in innovation and seeded in peer-sharing, designing solutions collaboratively, using everyday materials and expertise. The international Intel Making @ Clubhouses initiative sustains a network of facilitation and new activities development fueled by youth empowerment and efficacy when members identify as Makers. Thanks to Intel and grassroots Making activities everyday in Clubhouses in 20 countries, Clubhouses host local Start Making! programs that are inclusive to underserved populations, especially female and minority youth.

We provide innovative learning spaces that put the student first, and encourage them to have an entrepreneurial spirit that is supported by the Rutgers University Community and NJ Community of Makers.
Students at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School worked after school over a two week period to build an electric kart. They came into the project with few tools, little knowledge of how electric vehicles worked or how to build one. They drove their kart at the Cape Cod Maker Faire. We will discuss the project, its challenges and successes. They got help from experts, and sourced materials from unusual places.
The challenges of Maker education for the twice exceptional learner illuminate significant issues for STEAM education in every context. Drawing from years of experience in hands-on learning, Kate Yourke will identify goals and obstacles both conceptual and practical, describing ways to enrich, differentiate, integrate and create with students of diverse backgrounds and learning styles. From guar gum to polarizing polymers, with needle felting, silkscreen and enamel, students have experienced the materials and processes of their built environment, gaining insight and making connections while enhancing executive function & coordination.
Start with $500 and a Power Wheel or any electric kids' ride on vehicle. Get some new batteries, new motor. Heck, some nice new tires, tie LEDs to the hood, sprinkle it with glitter, maybe a feather for class. Now race it!
LIB3 makes SMT PCB manufacturing available to hobbyists and small businesses with a unique workflow tailored for prototype and small-run volumes.
We have designed & implemented the first Makerspace at a children's hospital at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital @ Vanderbilt in Nashville,TN.These innovative,mobile,maker environments have a variety of materials to work with that can be taken around to children in their rooms. Children are invited to design,play, & make things using the given materials.The Makerspaces also virtually connect children in the hospital encouraging joint project collaboration.These Makerspaces not only provide children at the hospital with creative outlets & learning opportunities but also the opportunity to explore medical care from a patients perspective.
Common household appliances break or become obsolete. Good materials get used once or not at all. Come aboard the Physics Bus to see everyday stuff reincarnated into exhibits that showcase unusual physics phenomena.
