Re-Inventing the Wheel

1-day workshop at the Sandy Spring Museum about combining old and new technology to create new things.

Re-Inventing the Wheel was an all-day event that took place at the Sandy Spring Museum in Sandy Spring, Maryland. The event was the first one sponsored by KID Museum.

I helped prepare and facilitate the event. As part of the preparation for the workshop, I helped design a poster. The poster was placed on a table next to the “Circuit Center” activity area during the event.

I facilitated electronics activities, as well as the wind tubes (and flying machines) and draw bot stations. Michael commented after the event that I had a high endurance during the day, especially considering that I had just returned from the IDC conference in New York and was feeling sick with symptoms of a cold. There were several other activities at the event that I did not help facilitate including a “marble run”, and a vinyl cutting demonstration.
