Scientific Maker Exhibit and Symposium

Part of the annual meeting of American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pacific Division

University of San Diego, June 16, 2016
Exhibit 10AM-12:30PM, Symposium 1-5PM

It is more feasible to create your own lab equipment than ever before with the advent of 3D printing, low-cost Arduino sensors and other “maker” technologies. It is also possible to have citizen scientist collaborators who cannot only take data for you, but follow open-source plans to create their own equipment. Are you one of the pathfinders that has actually done this? If so, please consider bringing your creation to San Diego for the AAAS, Pacific Division’s first-ever Scientific Maker Exhibit. Group exhibits are welcome. Objects that are the subject of work in progress or recent crowdfunding campaigns or equivalent open-source projects are encouraged.

We are also holding a traditional scientific symposium immediately following the exhibit period. The conference site is here:

There is no charge for space, but all participants must register for the overall meeting (which runs June 14-17). If you are interested in giving a talk, proposals are due April 1. If you just want to exhibit a piece of equipment, proposals for that are due April 22. Applicants will be notified soon thereafter of the status of their application.

To apply to exhibit (due April 22) or give a talk (April 1) please fill out our application form at
