  • Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire, The Children’s Museum

    Mini Maker Faires are one‐day, family‐friendly events that celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology projects and the Do‐It‐Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for resourceful, creative people who like to tinker and love to make things. Craftsmen, artisans, performers, homesteaders, crafters, inventors, thinkers and doers are welcome to apply to be Makers. The Faire will showcase cutting edge technology such as 3D printing and robotics, but also have more traditional trades such as woodworking, fine arts, and sewing crafts.

  • Sea Air and Land Challenge, School District of Lancaster McCaskey East Campus

    The Sea Air & Land Challenge, nicknamed the SeAL Challenge, is an Office of Naval Research Sponsored STEM initiative in which teams of high school students learn about the engineering process by creating a robotic system that will be used to compete in challenges which mimic missions encountered by the military and first responders. The students work during spring semester, in either classes or after school groups, to design and develop the robotic systems; this could be a submersible for the underwater Sea Challenge, a drone for the Air Challenge, or a land rover for the Land Challenge. On Challenge Day, the teams of students come together to compete and determine whose design best meets the needs of the mission!

  • The 2020 CMU Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Social Good, Carnegie Mellon University

    The rapid advances in AI have made it possible to leverage AI techniques to address some of the most challenging problems faced by society. Indeed, there is a growing interest in this topic in the AI community in the past few years. However, AI researchers often find themselves without a clear path from addressing fundamental research problems to real-world deployment and positive real-world impact. The 2020 CMU AI and Social Good Symposium aims to address these challenges by bringing together AI researchers and social impact leaders to present their ideas and applications for maximizing the social good.
