Nervous System Keynote Speakers

Art, design, science and technology are the core of the maker movement and few makers represent those aspects more than Nervous System.  Jesse and Jessica will discuss Nervous System’s efforts to revolutionize product design through generative techniques, 3d-printing and interactivity. Along the way, they will take several long detours into the realms of natural pattern formation, simulation, and biology.  The talk will focus on their latest project, Kinematics, a 4D printing technique they created to create complex, foldable forms for 3D printing.

The Greater Newark Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of creativity and ingenuity in the New Jersey community. The faire invites makers—from woodworkers to beekeepers, from robotics engineers to 3d-printing artists, to present their projects that take DIY thinking to a new level.  Whether they’re presenting a clever new way to make ink, a robotic arm, a robot that can draw or the science behind conductive ink, the Makers at this event will captivate and inspire—all alongside the Newark Museum’s art and science collections acting as the ultimate ‘maker’ examples.

The event is more about show than tell in a fun faire environment. Join demonstrations, participate in hands-on workshops and be inspired by speakers pushing the limits of the art, science and technology. Bring the entire family to New Jersey’s first Maker Faire and find the MacGyver or Martha Stewart in you!
