WOW, what a first day!

The kick-off event provided the perfect opportunity to explain the “why” of this Summit, and, together with Simon Gao, to preview the presentations of the week ahead.

If you missed it, you can watch the replay.

Yesterday, in Day one of the Summit, we had Mark Wilson, Zafar Iqbal, João Alves, and Geoffrey Benton presenting the “why” and “how” behind some amazing projects. If you missed those sessions during the free-view 24 hours, you can consider getting a Full Access Pass.

Day 2 is about to start.

Today’s theme is “The Why of Making“.

Here’s a list of presenters and their topics:

1. Gil Poznanski – “Making” is more than a hobby; it’s re-shaping society

Gil Poznanski, Creative Technologist, Maker, Teacher, explains that Making is more than just creating; it is about human learning in its purest form.

Through a series of stories inspired and results from things he has made, Gil explains why Making is not only a great way to learn new skills but is also interwoven with what it means to be a person and a member of a tribe, adding to a new global creative possibility.

2. Jorge de Sousa Pires – Context is everything! A fireside chat about Technology, How and Why

Jorge is a Senior University Lecturer and Ass. Prof of Semiconductor Physics, with decades of experience in Academia, and Industry.

He’s been making Tech-magic and Art since he was 10, and never stopped learning and teaching. In his presentation, Jorge will take you on a journey through a continuously changing technology landscape with an intense wish to develop Society and himself.

It is a practical presentation in which Jorge will show you various gadgets and components, from the ’60s to today, from electronics tubes to drones.

Jorge will help you find the How and Why we have come such a long way in the development of Society (hint: it’s all about Making).

Remember to watch the videos quickly because they’re only available for 24 hours before they go in the Maker Mind Meld Vault.
