Educator Innovator Following Hack Your Notebook Day, a nationwide paper circuitry and applied STEM learning event held this summer that brought together makers from around the country, libraries and other connected learning spaces have continued “hacking” notebooks by holding independent events for diverse groups of learners around the country. In August, a group of teens gathered at the San Francisco Public Library, a member of the YouMedia network, to do some electrical engineering. But they probably didn’t realize that’s what they were doing. If they had they might have been too intimidated to sign up for the program. After a short video orientation, the students—five girls and five boys—were drawing and illuminating text and images in their notebooks using copper tape, conductive thread, 3-volt coin batteries, and LED lights.

Cavity magnetron Magnetron with section removed to exhibit the cavities. The cathode in the center is not visible. The waveguide emitting microwaves is at the left. The magnet producing a field parallel to the long axis of the device is not shown. GROVE - Starter Kit v1.1b Introduction The Grove system is a modular, safe and easy to use group of items that allow you to minimise the effort required to get started with microcontroller-based experimentation and learning. Although there are many choices available for microcontroller development environments, the Grove system will work very well with the Arduino system. What is new in Grove Starter Kit v1.1b:

6 Fun Ways Kids Can Join the Maker Movement Children are natural makers — give a kid a cardboard box, and she’ll transform it immediately into an oven, a spaceship, an elevator, or something else that I probably cannot imagine. Recent years have seen a growth of the maker movement, or an enthusiasm for inventing and creating new technologies and tools, in the U.S., Europe, and many countries across the world. Here is a look at the origins of the maker movement, how it fosters creativity, and some of the resources available to kids. How the Maker Movement Got Started The maker movement has its origins in the do-it-yourself (DIY) attitude.

Light It Up! 15 Awesome LED Projects Speaking of bright lights and big balloon-filled celebrations, what about getting into some DIY action with LED lights? LEDs are awesome and make it easy to turn household items like bottles, jars, and cotton balls into gorgeously illuminated pieces of decor. 1. Illuminated Bouquet: For this bit of floral illumination, you use a doily dimensional flower punch and an LED branch! (Tutorial and photos: Saved By Love Creations) 2.

Birkeland-Eyde reactor for making nitric acid. Well thank you! That takes some of the frustration of building 5 non-working reactors before this one away. But my design is NOT better than good. I'm going to do some improvements today: 1) Using larger pots to allow for continous running by eliminating the heat problem. This also allows for longer steel rods, exposing more air to the arc.
