2:30pm // Making, and Making a Difference

Can the Maker Movement transform education? Yes it can if we combine Making with making a difference. Learn how teams of students in 70+ middle and high schools across the country are working on Maker projects right now that address engineering and technology-based needs in their community.

This is a project from Purdue University that has students solving real design challenges for real people resulting in real impact. This is talk is intended for Makers and Educators alike.

4pm // Making the Ability to Make

Sea freight containers move around, are well built, water proof, and secure…and yet they are piled up in growing numbers all over the world. Their steel construction and structure allow for almost any modifications. The need is apparent and the ability to provide benefit is clearly present all around us.

I do Make things also…In fact I have had 7 studios since ASU, well…8…and that leads me to this, no longer only, “a theoretical project presentation.” George Ettenheim’s 10aC 8 Ball Studio is an example of the potential, ingenuity, and “can do attitude” that we all can benefit from. 8 Ball Studio is based in a 45′ High Cube Surplus container.
