Modernised Dreamcatcher (3.30pm-5pm) Dreamcatchers originated with the Ojibwe people and were later adopted by some neighbouring nations through intermarriage and trade. Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of the world and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, so that Asibikaashi could protect them through the dreamcatchers.
The Ojibwe believe that a dreamcatcher changes a person’s dreams. Good dreams would pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper, bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day.
We’ve updated the look of the dreamcatcher whilst retaining the symbolic elements which gives the dreamcatcher its magic! Learn to make dreamcatchers for your loved ones, to ensure they have nothing but good dreams!

These activities include some of the following:
(a) Bill Gates and Pancake Flipping (introduction to algorithms!)
(b) Reading your mind with matheMAGIC,
(c) Fun with Sorting Networks,
(d) Looking at our world recursively,
(e) learning AI with Tic-Tac-Toe
The workshop will close with reflections on how these activities link to real-life problem solving in computer science and everyday things in our lives.”Come with an open mind and a questioning attitude.”

Does your child love playing games at the Carnival or Arcade? Would you like to learn how to “make” as a family?
Then join us for this fun workshop, where child & parent teams will make their own unique games. Teams will first collaborate to imagine and design their game. They combine recycled, arts & craft materials, basic electronics and lots of creativity to make them. This workshop will feature game booths built by our “Child & Parent Maker” ambassadors. Each team is assigned a Maker ambassador to learn about their Maker journey and why making is important for their families.
In the final session for this workshop teams will share their game with all participants and have fun playing those created by others. Teams will have a chance to showcase their game with visitors at the MakerFaire. Let’s play, make and learn!

Make & Play! Catch the Sound of Singapore (1.15pm-2.45pm) In this workshop, participants will create a unique soundscape using original gadgets that collect everyday sounds and then transform into musical instruments. The instructor is a musical instrument interface researcher who combines his knowledge of toy design and electronic technology to develop “co-playing musical instruments” that function as tools for enjoying music regardless of musical talent or physical disability. In the workshop, participants will each produce their own gadget that they will use to conduct fieldwork in the Maker Faire Singapore venue. They will search for the fascinating sounds that lie concealed in the familiar world around us, collecting the noise of crowds, machines, the wind, cars, insects and birds, or tapping objects in the venue to produce strange new tones. After the workshop, all the participants will join together to play their sounds, creating a special soundscape of Maker Faire Singapore. Along with acquiring foundational knowledge of electronics by making their own devices, participants can also learn hands-on about the basics of soundscape design, which rediscovers the everyday through recording and playing sounds. (Please note that a soldering iron will be used for part of the workshop.) Organized by the Japan Foundation Asia Center.Supprted by Gakken Plus Co.,Ltd.

Make & Play! Slime Synthesizer Sinfonia (4.15pm-5.45pm) This workshop features the “Slime Synthesizer,” a unique musical instrument that is played by touching or transforming slime, and is led by the creators themselves. By manipulating the fluid, it is almost like you are grasping clouds of air. Winner of a New Face Award at the 18th Japan Media Arts Festival, the electronic musical instrument was also a big hit at Maker Faire Tokyo. In this workshop, participants will make the slime and combine it with the synthesizer to create their own musical instruments. Alongside learning hands-on about the basics of science such as the three states of matter (solid, gas and liquid) and electrical resistance, participants can also experience the fun of making their own electronic musical instruments, which is now a major trend in Japanese maker culture. The workshop will end with all the participants playing their instruments together and performing an original symphony for Maker Faire Singapore. Through learning about the foundations of science and making their own devices, participants can experience a new style of performance and musical expression completely different to what is played with conventional instruments and music. Discover the possibilities and creativity of DIY and maker culture! Suitable for 10-15 year olds
Organized by the Japan Foundation Asia Center.

Presentation: An Introduction to Autonomous Robotics with ROS* and the Intel® RealSense™ Robotic Development Kit (1045am – 1130am)
This keynote covers:
Basic ROS concepts: topics, services, transforms, launch files, and URDF robot description files
- Use of rviz to observe internal robot state, as well as other tools for ROS debugging such as rqt
- A simple ROS mapping and navigation stack structure based on gmapper, amcl, and move-base
- Use of the RealSense ROS drivers to capture information about the environment for mapping and obstacle avoidance
ROS*, the Robot Operating System, is an open-source software framework for autonomous robotics from the Open Source Robotics Foundation* (OSRF*). It runs under Linux (with Ubuntu being the preferred distribution) and supports advanced features such as simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) and autonomous navigation. Using a simple mobile robot based on the Intel® RealSense Robotics Development Kit (which includes both an Intel® RealSense™ 3D camera and an UP Board* from Aaeon* with a quad-core Intel® Atom x5-8350 processor), this session will demonstrate and explain a foundational set of ROS packages for subjected to change. autonomous navigation. The Intel RealSense 3D camera allows the robot to incrementally build a map of its environment, figure out where the robot is relative to that map, then use that information to plan and execute autonomous travel from one location in the environment to another.
During travel, the 3D depth information from the camera can also be used to avoid obstacles in real time. This basic ability to navigate in complex and dynamic environments forms the basis of more advanced mobile robotics applications, such as delivery services. And yet all the necessary processing and mechanics can be packed into a robot small enough to go into a backpack, and using a completely free open-source software stack!
