Robotics and Maker Fan Track

Director: Valerie Macht

The Robotics and Maker Fan Track is dedicated to exploring all aspects of Robotics and The Maker Movement. We hold informative panels, demonstrations, and competitions designed to feed your interest and increase knowledge on the practice and application of invention and engineering.

Our focus is on technology and engineering based creative pursuits, ranging from 3D printing to machining, to fabric circuits. Our goal is to build interest in skills and creativity to be used in bringing new ideas to the public.

From special effects to space rovers, The Robotics and Maker Fan Track is your stop for all things created when tech meets imagination. This year we will cram even more into the schedule about electronic art forms, drones, ham radio, animatronics, virtual reality, water jet cutting, metal work, and fighting robots than you thought possible!
