Hollowed Grove is a kinetic and interactive sculptural installation which encourage questions concerning designed obsolescence, resource usage, and the economies of scale utilized in manufacturing.
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.
THE BIONIC BOOT IS THE PERSONAL TRANSPORTATION DEVICE FOR THE FUTURE. THIS HUMAN POWERED INVENTION ALLOWS THE USER TO TRAVERSE VARIED TERRAIN AT HIGH SPEED WITH MAXIMUM MANEUVERABILITY BY THE USE OF A SPRING LOADED BOOT.rnrn
LIB3 makes SMT PCB manufacturing available to hobbyists and small businesses with a unique workflow tailored for prototype and small-run volumes.
Our voxel-based display hardware and volumetric graphics processor makes a new era of entertainment and information display possible where multiple people can share a holographic 3D experience in 360 degrees without glasses.
How to fascinate young researchers for the field of optics & photonics? Is there any experimental platform for them to make research at a professional level? How can they follow their own ideas? These questions initiated the idea of transferring optics/photonics-experiments to schools and education by using Lego-bricks. This maker project essentially involves the development of experiments at professional level with excellent opto-mechanical quality at low costs. Construction manuals, parts lists, manuals for experiments, setup- and adjustment movies are published as open-source on the makers' webpage http//www.myphotonics.eu.
Come design a castle or your dream home in minutes on a tablet, then see it print on our 3d printer. We'll show you how to go from an idea to a real printed model, and let you know how to get the app and the printer.
As a sophomore, I developed all aspects of a more inexpensive, intuitive, and attainable 3D printer, combining engineering, electronics, software development, material science, and design.
Make a muscle for a wind-powered robot. A wind rotor made from two disposable cups twists up a loop of high-tech fishing line to make it powerfully contract. Uses hot-melt adhesives, wire bending, and knot tying.
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.
Join MoMath in creating amazing human-plus-scale geometric structures that take on three-dimensional forms through a combination of tension and compression. Learn how to combine PVC and bungee cords in dramatic new ways!
We'll talk about how Making has pathways to engineering majors as its advantages to becoming technically literate are numerous. Programs such that emphasize project-based learningn(Olin, Harvey Mudd College, Arizona State University, Bucknell University) have committed to integration hands-on experiences and building projects into 4 years of engineering curricula. This will not be a selling spiel for our ASU and Bucknell programs but rather a talk connecting project-based learning and Making.
Imagine high school students using their Maker skills to solve real life problems in their communities. The ''EPICS'' program from Purdue University helps Makers do just that. It's life changing education at it's best.
