These are mostly notes for a discussion section I’m leading at ITP Camp, but I thought gathering them with links here would be useful.

In this 1.5 hour session we’ll talk about motors, torque, and how things move. Then we’ll open in up into a studio/discussion so we can talk about the ideas of the participants and how we can turn them into reality. You can come just for the how-to and discussion, but you’ll get more out of it you have a real project idea in mind that could benefit from what you’ll learn.

One of the perks of being an adjunct at NYU is access to a professional development fund to support activities like attendance at an academic conference, meeting or other relevant professional development activity. I applied for the maximum of $1,000 to support travel to Maker Faire in San Francisco this May, and just got a letter in the mail today saying that I was awarded the grant! The Maker Faire lines up well with my residency at Eyebeam to finish my book, Making Things Move, and hopefully after I get a taste of what it’s all about I can participate more formally in the Maker Faire in New York in September.
