Science City's Town Hall Meeting Room, Saturday March 3 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
We're continuing a tradition started by the Kansas City Robotics Society (KCRS) of meeting at Union Station/Science City each month for a robotics show & tell.
Young Engineers, Digital Fabrication, Thing-A-Day, Open Projects and more at this month's Make:KC Show & Tell.
Young Engineers Club
Home schoolers and smaller private K-12 schools are looking for innovative ways of incorporating technology into their studies. Tom Collins will discuss the Young Engineers group started at the school his kids attend.
Come join our bi-weekly discussion examining the impact of disruptive technologies on teaching, learning and finding ways to support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) based studies through Life-Long Learning.
Making: The Art of STEM
Plan to attend Make:KC's bi-weekly Robotics meetings starting Wednesday February 22, 2012. If you bring a cheap 2D scanner found at thrift stores, we'll take them apart to explore useful parts you can salvage. Also, if you have a robot you're working on then bring it along and show others. We'll learn how you can build your own custom robot parts at the Fab Lab.

This month we're taking a look inside a Tesla Coil with Steve Siegel. We're learning about how a Tesla Coil works and what it takes to build one. We're looking forward to finally getting started building our own.
Making: The Art of STEM
STEM, a buzzword used to rally support calling for more Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in schools. At the core of this movement is the belief our kindergarten through high school students are not being prepared for their future, where the jobs these kids will face haven't been invented yet. Creativity, problem solving, and inventiveness are among the essential skills they'll need. Some criticize STEM for leaving Art out of this mix. Making and the Maker Movement embodies the Art of STEM.
