Make Magazine and Hackaday Supercon

For those of you following our project to teach math and science with 3D printing, you'll be glad to know that we are doing a Hackaday Supercon presentation about our Hacker Calculus project.  We are scheduled as the first talk on Sunday morning, Nov. 4 (10 AM). Supercon tickets still available at

Also, we have a writeup about our math and science work in general in the new issue (Oct/Nov 2018) of Make magazine. Check it out!(Subscription required, or should be available on newstands soon if not already there.)

Learn about 3D Printing this summer!

Have you been thinking you really should learn about 3D printing this summer? We now have courses on two online platforms, so you'll have a lot of choices about how to learn from us.

We teach the following classes online, hosted by LERN Network (click one of the links below for more information and to register). These courses are four weeks long.
If you want to do a deep dive in some intermediate-level topics, we've authored the following courses for Learning: Additive Manufacturing: Optimizing 3D Prints and Additive Manufacturing: Troubleshoot 3D Prints

Third Annual Scientific Maker Exhibit, Cal Poly Pomona, June 11-15

AAAS Pacific Division logo    We are pleased to announce the third annual Scientific Maker Exhibit at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pacific Division Annual Meeting. The meeting is at Cal Poly Pomona, in Pomona, California, an eastern suburb of Los Angeles, June 11-15, 2018.

It is now feasible to use “maker” technologies like 3D printing, Arduino electronics, sensors, and the like to make data visualizations, experimental equipment and more. It is also possible to enable citizen scientist collaborators who cannot only take data for professional scientists, but follow open source plans to create their own equipment. Are you one of the pathfinders that has actually tried to do one of these things?

Exhibits in this session consist of a table or half-table, with limited availability of power. This is intended to be a “third way” of presenting, as an alternative to the usual conference options of a paper or a poster. Note that there is no provision for hanging a poster at the Scientific Maker Exhibit – presenters get a table that they staff for a couple of hours. The intent is to present and explain 3D prints, low-cost Arduino-based equipment, etc. and to allow attendees to interact with what is being presented.

This professional scientific conference, but students can compete (primarily undergrad and grad students) for prizes. Submission deadline is April 15, 2018. Presenters have to register for the meeting.
