This Week in Making: World Maker Faire Recaps, Halloween, and Drones


World Maker Faire coverage

Last weekend was the World Maker Faire. This annual event held in New York is one of our biggest Maker Faires and this year did not disappoint. We covered it, and so did a lot of other people. There’s so much coverage and recapping goodness that it could only be contained in a bullet pointed list. Here ya go!

If you’ve had a chance to play around with the Google Science Journal app on your phone, you’ve seen how it takes the sensors on your phone and allows you to collect data with them. That’s great… but what kind of science projects can you actually use them for. Well, Maker Camp just shared 10 free experiments to get you started.

It’s not too late to take advantage of this great Humble Bundle deal on some of our most popular Make: ebooks, as well as snag some new releases.
