VR collaborative experience We are aiming to run a VR collaborative experience from our Storyhive system. Developed by our in-house creative production and technical team, the Storyhive System is the first broadcasting system known in Asia which allows up to 100 people to enjoy the same interactive VR content concurrently. We aim at applying this game-changing system in areas including but not limited to training, education, film screening, corporate presentations, etc., to allow more audiences interact in the virtual world while enjoying high-quality VR content.

Robotics Teaching how to assemble our robotics kit as well as coding. Participants will be provided with a robotics kit
rero
It will be a product demonstration to showcase our robotics kit as well the visual coding software that we have developed. We will also showcase some of the 3D printed robotics and electronics projects that we have done and share these opensource files and information with everyone so that can make one themselves.

Make & Play! Slime Synthesizer Sinfonia 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.
Supprted by Gakken Plus Co.,Ltd.

Computational Thinking Computational Tinkerer Computational Thinking has been said to be the fourth R, in tandem with the current 3R (Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic).
And many have recognized the importance of CT as a life skill for all in the 21st century and beyond.

In this workshop, we will give a gentle introduction to CT via three fun and thought- provoking hands-on activities that expose participants to the FUN and the thinking processes behind CT.

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.”

HackAble by Engineering Good Engineering Good’s HackAble workshop aims to engage participants in a hands-on learning experience to build low-cost, DIY assistive devices for persons with disabilities, while raising awareness about disabilities and how technology can enable and empower those with disabilities. The workshop will respond to the needs of disability organisations, and products made through it will be given to these organisations after the event.
At Maker Faire, participants will have an opportunity to make an adapted computer mouse that is suitable for people with disabilities.

 Maker Force, Young Makers 
Presentation
We will be making a presentation on education in Singapore and how to enhance maker culture in schools. We will also be talking about our experiences being young makers in Singapore and how the learning through experience benefits us more than studying in school. That will lead us to highlight the formation of MakerForce in the first place and the rationale and ideals of our group. We will also be talking about the projects that we made and the avenues through which young makers can get opportunities that allows them to excel in life.
