The Magic of Making with Mario the Maker Magician
Mario offers a half-hour keynote presentation for Student Day, in which he shares his personal journey with making and how to adapt making to your life in the most fulfilling way. Offering some demos of his own creative works, and inspiration for kids to discover their own unique paths. Do what you love. Use what you have. And have fun.
When you simply have to have the newest toy, you print it, reiterate it and just keep on going. This is exactly what happened the day after the CYBERTRUCK unveiling! As soon as the kids saw it, they just wanted it and thanks to our great friends at Tangilble Creative https://tangiblecreative.com and Ants In Africa http://www.antsinafrica.co.za we were able to start printing it shortly after. Not only did this get all of us excited but also got us thinking about enhancements and accessories and we have a big surprise for you if you plan on attending the virtual faire with us so please bookmark this page and save the date for the unveiling!! We look forward to seeing you and sharing in proper Maker fashion!
Genspace – BioMaker Lab Tour
Genspace is a community biology laboratory, sometimes called a biomaker lab or a biohacker space, in South Brooklyn, New York where anyone can learn the fundamental scientific concepts and lab skills they need to meaningfully engage with the life sciences — including biology, biotechnology, microbiology, genetics, and related subjects. Biomakers are scientists, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs, and in our lab they hack lab gear, create new sustainable biomaterials, and explore the ethical and social issues of emerging global technologies. In this session, you’ll get a tour of the Genspace lab, see objects, materials, and technology that Genspace members have made. We’ll talk about the minimal gear you need to get started with basic biotechnology experiments, and the types of organisms that are easy-to-grow and safe to use in a wide range of settings.
