1-2pm Makers presentation with Dale Dougherty (Make Magazine)
The Tinkering Studio’s OPEN MAKE: Toys event
This Saturday, Shana and I will be featured as spotlighted Makers with our Accessorize with Toys workshop for the Exploratorium’s Open Make: Toys event! Other Makers that will be there: Nathan Sawaya (amazing LEGO® brick artist, super famous!), I-Wei Huang (Toys for Bob, Skylanders developer), and Marek Michalowski (BeatBots LLC). Crafting, robots, and LEGO®, oh my! Below is a screen shot of the webpage for the event:
From 10am-12:30pm we will lead our hands-on projects of Charm Bracelets (intermediate skill) and Expressive Name Badges (all levels). You can find us at the Tinkering Studio area (see map, green area). Then, from 1-2pm we’ll be in the McBean Theater (see map, red area) for presentations and interview with Dale Dougherty, founder and editor of MAKE Magazine and Maker Faire. Q&A with the audience to follow. It’s going to be sweeet! And it’s all included with general admission to the Exploratorium. A collaboration between the Exploratorium, MAKE Magazine, and Pixar Animation Studios, Open MAKE is a monthly program highlighting the tools, techniques, and ingenuity of local Makers.
