 Our first speaker is Mr. Dale Dougherty, founder and executive chairman of Maker Media Inc. If you do not know Maker Media, you may have joined or heard about the Maker Faire which Mr. Dougherty created 11 years ago. It is amazing to see how the Maker Faire became a worldwide event in such a short time.
Zach Supalla is the founder and CEO of Particle. He will share with us how a maker can bring a prototype to manufacture. Particle is a startup company in San Francisco focusing on providing connection solutions for IoT applications.


Dr. Weixun Cao, the founder and CEO of BitLab, has built more than 200 maker classrooms in China. He will introduce the STEM programs in China and the maker movement there.  He will illustrate that a “maker education” is an important supplement to traditional education because it helps children learn to create and connect with the real world.


Sandra Madrigal is the founder and CEO of ProtoCafe. She is a Stanford graduate and began her career as an engineer. She began to provide professional 3D printing services 15 years ago. She will present and compare current 3D printing technologies.


Steven Si is a technical director at MediaTek Labs, one of the leading providers of semiconductor solutions for IoT and wearable devices. MediaTek Labs also supports the maker movement with products and resources. Steven will present applications created by makers.


Arnie Chencinski and Wen Chu will share their maker experiences in the afternoon session. Arnie Chencinski will present how he connected all devices of his home to the Internet and created a smart home. Wen Chu will present how he used low-cost microcontrollers to create several interesting gadgets, including one that can measure air quality (PM2.5). Both will provide all details of the parts that they used.  This afternoon event is free of charge. All you need to do is to register online before all the seats are taken.


The keynote speaker of the dinner banquet is Professor Chenming Hu from UC Berkeley who just received the National Medal of Technology and Innovation from President Obama. The topic of his presentation will be “My Encounters in Innovation.” Professor Hu was former chief technology officer of TSMC and is best known for his contribution to IC reliability, the BSIM SPICE model, and the FinFET transistor. The ICs designed based on the BSIM model are worth more than several billion U.S. dollars.

<< The Chinese Institute of Engineers – USA (CIE-USA), founded in 1917 in New York, is one of the oldest Chinese-American engineer associations in the U.S. The CIE-USA’s mission is to promote technological advancement, networking, and communication among engineers and scientists. >>

We have a very strong speaker lineup this year. Mr. Dale Dougherty, Founder and Executive Chairman of Maker Media Inc, has accepted our invitation. If you don’t know Maker Media, you may have joined or heard the Maker Faire which Mr. Dougherty created 11 years ago. It is amazing to see how they grow the Maker Faire to a worldwide event in such a short time (http://makerfaire.com/map/). Mr. Dougherty is a great speaker and I love his talk in TED. He is also a co-founder of O’Reilly Media which you may read books published by them.

Maker Movement is hot in Asia in the past 2 years. The governments of cities and countries created incentives for Maker Movement. Different to the US where the maker activities may begin from hobbies, the maker movement in Asia is usually coupled with entrepreneurship tightly. One thing in common is that people believe the maker education is important. One of the speakers, Mr. Weixun Cao, who is the CEO of BitLab, has built more than 200 maker classrooms in China. He will introduce the STEM programs in China and also the maker movement there. You will be surprised at what you will hear if you have not noticed the booming of the maker activities there.

Two more friends will share their maker experiences. One connected all devices of his home with internet and created a smart home few years ago. The other friend used low cost microcontrollers to create several interesting gadgets including one can detect the air quality (PM2.5). It is cheaper and easier to do these things today than years ago. Our speakers will give you all the detail info of the devices and parts that they used and show you how they search for the parts that they needed. CIE/USA got supports from sponsors and can provide this event free of charge. All you need to do is to register online today before all the seats are taken.

2016AC 下午科技研讨会简体中文邀请

您好。您二月二十七号 (2/27)会在湾区吗? 如果您在,我们想邀请您参加一个以创客(Maker)为主题的研讨会。这是美洲工程师学会2016年会的下午科技研讨会, 2/27星期六下午在山景城的电脑历史博物馆内举行,详细时间地址列在本文最後。

今年我们有一个超强的演讲者阵容。首先是Maker Media的Founder and Executive Chairman,Dale Dougherty。如果您不知道这家公司,那您也许听过或参加过他们创始的Maker Faire。如果您查询各地举办Maker Faire的地图 (http://makerfaire.com/map/),我相信您会对他们如何在十年内把创客运动由矽谷发扬到全世界感到讶异。Dale 是一个非常棒的演讲者,他在TED上的演讲非常激励人心。他的众多头衔中包含了O’Reilly Media的co-founder。他将是本活动的第一位讲者,欢迎您提早到现场挑个好位置聆听他的演讲。

过去两年在许多亚洲国家,从地方政府到中央政府都积极鼓励“创客运动”。与美国这边以兴趣为主的发展不同,亚洲所鼓励的创客运动与创业结合的较为紧密。两边的共通点是,全世界都觉得创客教育是学龄教育以及高等教育重要的一环。我们的另一位演讲者Weixun Cao (曹伟勋),CEO of BitLab,在中国建造了两百多个创客教室。他除了会介绍在中国的创客教育,同时会介绍这两年在中国风起云涌的创客运动已及各级政府对创客运动的各种支持。对於无法经常前往亚洲考察的人,这是绝佳的机会了解那里的发展现状。

我们还有两位朋友会分享他们的创客经验。在工作之馀,他们打造出几个有趣的产品。第一位朋友把全家各种电器都连上网,在好几年前就打造出智慧家庭。另外一个朋友用现在很便宜又容易取得的Microcontroller建出几个好玩的东西,包含一个可以测空气品质 PM2.5的装置。这位朋友曾成功建立一个新创公司并且出售它。从他介绍他的创客经验,也许您也能感受到创业家的精神。这两位朋友都会完整的提供他们使用元件的资料,已及他们如何开始它的计画以及找寻这些元件的。你会惊讶於这些事情比您想像的容易。在许多地方这会是个收费的课程,感谢许多公司的慷慨帮助,美洲工程师学会可以将这个活动免费提供给湾区的朋友,请您及早报名。(还有几位演讲者资料会补上)

2016AC 下午科技研討會繁體中文邀請

您好。請教您二月二十七號 (2/27)在灣區嗎? 如果您在,我們想邀請您參加一個以創客(Maker)為主題的研討會。這是美洲工程師學會2016年會的下午科技研討會, 2/27星期六下午在山景城的電腦歷史博物館內舉行,詳細時間地址列在本文最後。

今年我們有一個超強的演講者陣容。首先是Maker Media的Founder and Executive Chairman,Dale Dougherty。如果您不知道這家公司,那您也許聽過或參加過他們創始的Maker Faire。如果您查詢各地舉辦Maker Faire的地圖 (http://makerfaire.com/map/),我相信您會對他們如何在十年內把創客運動由矽谷發揚到全世界感到訝異。Dale 是一個非常棒的演講者,他在TED上的演講非常激勵人心。他的眾多頭銜中包含了O’Reilly Media的co-founder。他將是本活動的第一位講者,歡迎您提早到現場挑個好位置聆聽他的演講。

過去兩年在許多亞洲國家,從地方政府到中央政府都積極鼓勵”創客運動”。與美國這邊以興趣為主的發展不同,亞洲所鼓勵的創客運動與創業結合的較為緊密。兩邊的共通點是,全世界都覺得創客教育是學齡教育以及高等教育重要的一環。我們的另一位演講者Weixun Cao (曹偉勛),CEO of BitLab,在中國建造了兩百多個創客教室。他除了會介紹在中國的創客教育,同時會介紹這兩年在中國風起雲湧的創客運動已及各級政府對創客運動的各種支持。對於無法經常前往亞洲考察的人,這是絕佳的機會了解那裡的發展現狀。

我們還有兩位朋友會分享他們的創客經驗。在工作之餘,他們打造出幾個有趣的產品。第一位朋友把全家各種電器都連上網,在好幾年前就打造出智慧家庭。另外一個朋友用現在很便宜又容易取得的Microcontroller建出幾個好玩的東西,包含一個可以測空氣品質‑PM2.5的裝置。這位朋友曾成功建立一個新創公司並且出售它。從他介紹他的創客經驗,也許您也能感受到創業家的精神。這兩位朋友都會完整的提供他們使用元件的資料,已及他們如何開始它的計畫以及找尋這些元件的。你會驚訝於這些事情比您想像的容易。在許多地方這一定是個收費的課程,美洲工程師學會得到許多贊助公司的幫助,可以將這個活動免費提供給灣區的朋友,請您及早報名,以免向隅。(還有幾位演講者資料會補上)
