ASEE Makers 2016 is coming . . .
Detailed information to be published soon. An idea of what to expect can be found from this past conference’s ASEE Makers guidelines.
All levels (high school or college students, or other participants) are welcomed to share their Make-themed demonstration, show, or display.
We want to recognize all design and build activities in the truest form of the academic tradition of diverse opinions and expression. The basic caveats would be that it must be i) something that can be reproduced, ii) demonstrated, iii) of interest to at least some of an audience of students, faculty, and/or K-12, and iv) it was built by you, staff, and/or students. These projects can range from hard core technical design of mechanical/manufactured products to innovative techniques for textile work. An artistic flair is welcomed.
Mainly it is just fun to design, build, and share. But, the Maker community is a new main pipeline for gifted students of all types and their expression of making things using STEM knowledge and skills. It is a great way for engineering and technology programs to make themselves more approachable to the general public.
