For today’s Maker Camp Field Trip Friday, we travel to the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of Natural History to visit human origins researcher Briana Pobiner. From the Smithsonian’s G+ page:

Briana Pobiner will show us the tools humans used for the earliest DIY projects thousands of years ago. Humans have always been makers–you might say we have DIY in our DNA–and we’re excited to host the next generation of young makers on Friday.

Join us at noon Pacific, 3pm Eastern on MAKE’s Google+ page.
