Survey on Digital Fabrication Programming at AMNH

If you are seeing this page, it is most likely because you picked up information at Maker Faire 2013 at the American Museum of Natural History’s booth and want to learn more about digital fabrication programs in our education department.

If you want to learn more about our first program to use digital fabrication, Capturing Dinosaurs, you can watch a great video below and learn more about it here.

We are still developing new programs for the 2013-2014 year, and would love to know which ideas in the works might be of interest. Please review the ideas below and signal your interest on the survey:

  • A week-long Capturing Dinosaurs in Feb 2014
  • Capturing Dinosaurs in summer 2014
  • Capturing Mammals – like Capturing Dinosaurs, but focused on mammals
  • Weekend Family Day Series – one day a month, bring in your whole family to digitize items in our collections and learn science.
  • Digitizing Education’s Collection – did you know we have 15,000 items in our Education’s Collection, once shared with public school teachers but now used exclusively within Museum education programs? This program could create and share digital versions of the collection.
  • Other ideas, to which you can add your own.

Would you like to be notified when registration opens for this or any other AMNH program using digital fabrication to teach science? Then please go here to fill out the survey.
