Meet the Makers: Siena College Physics Makers

Members of the Siena College community will be demonstrating exciting projects from the world of physics, robotics, 3D printing — and even Minecraft! — at the Troy Mini Maker Faire on Saturday August 27 from 11 am to 6 pm. Come see their displays:

  • Cloud Chamber – Observe the tracks left by particles from radioactive decays as they zip through a contained alcohol mist.
  • e-NABLE hands – Students at Siena College have been creating 3D-printed hands to children in need of artificial limbs. Check out samples of the hands and the 3D printers used to create them.
  • Robotics – Learn how to measure the motion of robotic cars using accelerometers.
  • MinecraftEDU worlds – Students can learn physics in a new and exciting way using the Pressure and Force activity from Minecraft’s educational component.

Attend the Troy Mini Maker Faire this Saturday, August 27, from 11 am to 6 pm. Get your free tickets  now (or just come by) and meet all our Makers. We’ll see you there!
