Maker Idea #4 Use Sensors to control lights on Your Skateboard, Shoes or Ears

MakeHaven has sensors and Arduinos with them you can take senor data (sound, light, vibration, radio, etc) and turn it into light. How about a skate board that lights brighter the faster you go, or earrings that light up when you shake your head, or a scarf that tells you the temperature.

We bought a bunch of these led lights (neo pixils) for the make-a-thon, register now and start inventing!

 

Ears

Maker Idea #1. Sew, then Light Up a Dress

For our upcoming make-a-thon we are rounding up some ideas of what you can make at the event. Idea number one is to sew and light some clothing.

MakeHaven has sewing machines and there are various fabrics available next door at the creative reuse center.  We have lots of LEDs, soldering irons, batteries, arduinos, neopixles, sensors and other supplies electrify your worn creations.

The Amazing Paper Folding of Ray Schamp

Registered Attendees Only

Ray Schamp is a world renowned origami artist known for his work with folding origami corrugations. The origami he does draws on mathematical concepts and requires skill and technique to bring to life. 

Origami Corrugations are straight line folds that are left partly open and collapse the paper continuously in geometrically interesting ways.

In this class, students will create two origami corrugations. Materials will be provided in class.

Some examples of his work.
