Event Description

The inaugural Rogue Valley Mini Maker Faire will be held Saturday, November 19th, from 10 am to 5 pm at ScienceWorks Hands-on Museum in Ashland. Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth, an interactive, family friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. Visitors and participants will get to make, create, craft, recycle, build, think, play and be inspired by celebrating the arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology of the Rogue Valley and beyond.

The event will offer hands-on activities and demonstrations from over 40 Makers including animation, needle felting, robotics, a car take apart, 3D printing, LEGO building, kinetic bikes, learning to use tools, crafting, and much more. 

Special guests include Danny Scheible, Sacramento based creator of TAPIGAMI, Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron, authors of the book 3D Printing Science Projects from Los Angeles, and Annika Schindler from Portland, costume designer for LAIKA the studio that produced the Oscar nominated films Coraline and The Boxtrolls. 

The Rogue Valley Mini Maker Faire is a community based event with organizing entities including ScienceWorks, Rogue Hack Lab, and individuals from the regional Maker community. Rogue Valley Mini Maker Faire is made possible with support from The Stadnisky Family Foundation, IBM, Ashland Home Net, Radio Medford, and others, and is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.

We Have Five Years To Save Ourselves From Climate Change, Harvard Scientist Says | Forbes

The level of carbon now in the atmosphere hasn't been seen in 12 million years, a Harvard scientist said in Chicago Thursday, and this pollution is rapidly pushing the climate back to its state in the Eocene Epoch, more than 33 million years ago, when there was no ice on either pole. "We have exquisite information about what that state is, because we have a paleo record going back millions of years, when the earth had no ice at either pole. There was almost no temperature difference between the equator and the pole," said James Anderson, a Harvard University professor of atmospheric chemistry best known for establishing that chlorofluorocarbons were damaging the Ozone Layer.

Scientists Keep Warning About The Dangers of 5G; Will We Listen? | Gaia

Over 180 scientists and doctors in almost 40 countries are warning the world about 5G health risks. “Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe” spells it out quite succinctly: “We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF)… and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

Humans Are Speeding Extinction and Altering the Natural World at an ‘Unprecedented’ Pace | The New York Times

Humans are transforming Earth’s natural landscapes so dramatically that as many as one million plant and animal species are now at risk of extinction, posing a dire threat to ecosystems that people all over the world depend on for their survival, a sweeping new United Nations assessment has concluded. The 1,500-page report, compiled by hundreds of international experts and based on thousands of scientific studies, is the most exhaustive look yet at the decline in biodiversity across the globe and the dangers that creates for human civilization. A summary of its findings, which was approved by representatives from the United States and 131 other countries, was released Monday in Paris. The full report is set to be published this year.
