Maker Faire 2013

Each tool had to be operated to ensure the progress of the balls. Kids grabbed a control knob or wheel, and immediately embraced their roles as ball-movers, each one essential to keep the balls progressing through the machine. Any kid who got his hand onto the controls was immediately part of the team, vital to the fun of everyone else on this infinite assembly line.

Bravo!

Another portion of the display was a wind-racer construction challenge, where kids were tasked with assembling a wind-powered car from straws, postcards, paperclips and masking tape, outfitted with Lifesaver candy wheels.

There were no examples to follow, no blueprints, just an unspoken challenge: Get your wind car all the way down the track.

It was really awesome. Original, insane designs were abundant, and occasionally a car would zip forward past the finish line. Failed runs would be tackled with a newly bent sail, or a fresh wrapping of masking tape.

 

I believe this was a display from an After Earth promotion (a movie), where kids were challenged to collect resources with remote-controlled vehicles.

It was a fantastic Maker Faire in the Bay Area this year! Packed, packed, packed with new, interesting displays. Innovative, engaging, inspiring and immersive. A really good show!
