We didn't get our exact schedule pinned down in time to ensure it was printed with the flyer for Maker Faire Kansas City, so here's the breakdown for Saturday and Sunday:

Saturday June 25, 2011

  • Main Hall Booth (various times throughout the day): Crazy Putty
    • What do you get when you bond the polymer chains in PVA glue together with borax? Crazy Putty Fun! Come by and make yourself some, totally free!
  • 12:30 @ Science City Test Kitchen: No-heat lava lamp
    • Learn how to make your very own groovy lava lamp with standard household items.
  • 2:30 @ Science City Test Kitchen: Molding / Casting with Composimold and Composicast
    • Want to learn how to clone real objects? With some special ingredients and a little bit of work you can make a mold and cast almost anything into resin.
  • 4:00 @ Make Center Stage: Arduino Laser Tripwire Alarm
    • With this simple Laser Tripwire, you can protect your room like it was a museum.

Sunday June 26, 2011

  • Main Hall Booth (various times throughout the day): Chicken in a Cup
    • Recreate the sound of a chicken with this cool little noisemaker, yours to keep when you're done!
  • 12:30 @ Science City Test Kitchen: Mr. Backpack
    • Got an old stuffed animal that needs to be a little more practical? Make it into a backpack! We'll show you all the steps and parts you need to do it yourself!

This may end up changing a little, so be sure to check back when in doubt. See ya there!
