Two calls for participation: scientific makers and educators

We are helping out with two different events this summer to showcase makers in the scientific and educational spheres.

The first one is June 16 at the annual meeting of the American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pacific Division. This year the meeting is at San Diego University. Exhibits and presentations are being sought in the area of using "maker" tech (like 3D printing, Arduinos, low-cost open-source sensors, etc) for professional-level science, or to enable citizen science.

If you are interested in giving a talk, proposals are due April 1. If you just want to exhibit a piece of equipment, proposals for that are due April 22.  To apply (and get links for the details) go to the form at

 The second one is August 8-9 at the Windward School in West Los Angeles. Are you an educator using maker technologies in your classroom or other projects? If so, please consider suggesting a talk or hands-on workshop.  Proposals are due March 15. More information here:

Hope to see you at one of these events!
