Jake On Quest
Our intern, Jacob McKenzie, is the star for a series of two-minute videos, which will air later this spring on the Quest program on KQED in San Francisco. He’s doing a series of four builds based on projects from Make: Vibrobot, Biosphere in a Jar, Cigar Box Guitar, and the magnetic gun also called a Gauss rifle. Jacob is a mechanical engineering student at Berkeley and he’s on break this month. Jacob is doing a great job. He had originally built all of these projects in the lab for the magazine.

KQED writes in –

Hi, this is Sheraz from QUEST. On behalf of Producer Chris Bauer and the rest of the crew, I want to thank Jacob, Dale, Shawn and the rest of the wonderful Make staff for a great shoot. If you’re a fan of Make and smart, cool science stories, keep an eye out for the season 2 premiere of QUEST – April 1st at 7:30pm on KQED. We’ll show our first Make segment on April 29th and roll out the other Make segments later in the season. Until then, please check out our story on the ’07 Maker Faire.
