Bloominglabs Fundraiser

Bloominglabs (co-host of Makevention) has to move! For the past 3 years we’ve enjoyed our current location which is on the future site of the Switchyard Park. The city is ready to begin making progress on the park which means we’ve received an eviction notice. Thankfully we have found a new location, but now we need to raise funds to support our relocation. We are fundraising for our future home and hope to use Makevention to help. Please see our GoFundMe for more details. Thanks!

Summer Camp Robotics

Presented by Intelligent Systems Engineering, Indiana University.

Robotics will become an important part of the 21st century’s life and infrastructure. There is a need to educate the next generation of scientists so they may understand the challenges and opportunities related to robotics. We will present student projects that interact with the environment through sensors and then to act upon that sensory information:

  • WiFi remote controlled robot swarm (students can drive them)
  • WiFi remote controlled balloon swarm (students can interact with them)
  • WiFi controlled robot car developed by STEM students
  • A Raspberry Pi controlled interactive plant

The hardware uses for these projects are based on esp8266 and Raspberry PI3.
