A robot designed do its own thing—and it wants to play outside at Makevention!
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.
Learn about ham radios with a hands-on demo of building and using them.
As the Internet of Things (IoT) demonstrates, the built environment is becoming increasingly more complex and integrated. Understanding how technologies like these affect the people living amongst them is urgent.
We show you how to construct a feathery, illuminated moving sculpture from dendrite, a piece of living architecture consisting of a sensor and several actuators.
Watch our experienced drivers maneuver robots to complete tasks—then you give it a try! Our student team members answer your questions about robots and help you learn to drive them.
We’re Quadrangles, high school FIRST Robotics Team 3494 in Bloomington. Each year we compete in district, state, and world robotics tournaments.
Sit and knit with us, surrounded by our beautiful handmade articles.
We use various-sized looms to demonstrate how weaving has been done throughout history—and let you try too. Also take home a weaving craft you make.
Welcome to Putt-PUTnam County! We’re a Greencastle makerspace who host an annual mini-golf design competition. Enjoy our course—and see what else we’re up to.
