Ingenuity’s Make Space
A huge hit at this year’s Festival was the Make Space. Partnering with individuals and organizations like Makers Alliance and the United States Fab Lab Network, Ingenuity created a zone where education, inspiration, and just plain showing off could happen. The Maker movement is definitely is definitely in Ingenuity’s past and future. Look for more maker events large and small from Ingenuity between now and next year’s festival.
From the 2012 Festival – September 14, 15, and 16:
Learn, create, and be inspired by this assembly of creative Makers. Watch a robot create art or fashion some of your own. Learn about everything from 3D printers to laser cutters to soldering irons. Just what is a Maker? Come and be surprised. You may already be one.
Fab Labs at Ingenuity’s Make Space
Cleveland and the North Coast are hotbeds of digital fabrication. They are home to MIT-inspired “Fab Labs” (fabrication laboratories) where users can make almost anything.
At IngenuityFest, the United States Fab Lab Network (USLFN) will sponsor several displays and demonstrations. The biggest will be MC2 STEM’s mobile Fab Lab—a 32’ NASCAR trailer decorated in Cleveland and equipped with the latest computer hardware and software for cutting, adding, shaping, 3D printing, and electronics. Around it will be a perimeter of tables for small businesses that got their starts in a Fab Lab. Several machines will be in the center ring to make personalized artifacts on the spot under supervision of students and other skilled Fab users.
The USFLN space will be staffed throughout IngenuityFest. Come see what’s “making.” Pick up information about local Labs. Talk with users of all ages. Try making something personal.
