Dustyn Roberts' project, Not Lazy Susan, comes from her book, "Making Things Move." In this project Dustyn takes the Lazy Susan concept and turns it into a rotating platform with hidden qualities. To make things interesting, she uses an infrared (IR) LED and phototransistor to make the table rotate with just a wave of a hand. You can use this as a table to magically serve food to dinner guests, or to make a fun interactive centerpiece.
These free camps are designed for children ages 10 to 18. Attendees are introduced to 3D CAD software and shown how 3D printers can make their work a reality. Many classes were nearly 50 percent girls and 50 percent boys.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
