What a special weekend for citizen scientists, amateur researchers, and do-it-yourself enthusiasts of all kinds (from techies to crafties)! The World Maker Faire is going on right now at the New York Hall of Science in Queens… the site of the 1964 World’s Fair.
This grand event features a plethora of wonderful projects, how-to’s, and hands-on experience for doing more cool things yourself. Key people in the DIY-world are presenting at the Faire, including Stephen Wolfram, creator of Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha, who spoke on Saturday about discovering and creating on your own interesting computational programs that do remarkable things.
If you aren’t attending this year’s Faire, you can keep track of the events taking place by checking out their daily postings.
If you are attending, please tell us what exciting things you discover, and post a picture on the Dynamic Patterns Research Facebook page.
