  • Music is in the Air (Leap Motion + Max)
  • Beyond Photography (lenses, scanners, micro-computers)
  • WordPlay (various inks, images, lights, and texts)

The Full Maker Experience will see our team set up a temporary mini-makerspace. Microcomputers and arducopters can intrigue your visitors while members of our team talk about 3D scanning, printing, and design. This experience can be tailored to specific audiences and age groups, so drop us a line and we’ll talk about what works best for you!

Example Demos:

  • Robots in the skies (arducopters, drones, and aerial robotics)
  • Life in plastic (3D printing)
  • Do you ardu? (arduino microcomputers)
  • Making Kinections (Microsoft Kinect, laptop computers)
  • On the air (Podcasting, microphones, audio editing software)

Space requirements: Four six foot tables, or small room, access to electrical circuits, internet access

*The Makerbus team would like to stress our commitment to access for everyone. While we require funding to keep our bus and materials in good working order, we understand that these options might not be possible for some people. Please email us if this is the case, and we’ll be happy to work out an option for you.
