"Nature vs. Nurture: A Story of Adoption, Reunion, Neuroscience and Shock Therapy"


How do we become the people we are? Is it in the way we were raised, or in our genes? Or both?


In this unique presentation, Dr. Larry Sherman weaves stories about his recently discovered biological family - including five siblings who all grew up in very different circumstances - with discussions about how our genes and environment influence our brains and, ultimately, who we are.

A-TAC: OMSI’s Teen Maker Movement

Build. Break. Make. Indeed. OMSI and Multnomah County Library’s Awesome Teen Advisory Council (A-TAC) demoed their inventive hearts out at Portland’s first Mini Maker Faire.

The teens used MakerBot Replicators to 3D print mustache rings and space invaders, and an EggBot to personalize ping pong balls. Let’s just say visitors to the A-TAC table did not walk away unhappy. Over 5,000 visitors came to OMSI to view the many inventions on display.

What the heck IS Maker Faire?

Ever since we announced the Portland Mini Maker Faire, the two responses I most often get are "YES, finally!" and "What the heck IS a Maker Faire?" Folks who have been to a Maker Faire in the past or even just heard reports know Portland is a great town to host one, and sure enough nearly all the makers we're showcasing this weekend are from the Pacific Northwest. But those who haven't heard of Maker Faire may need a little background.

Hand-Eye Supply Getting Geared Up for Portland Mini Maker Faire

Core77's Hand-Eye Supply store is proud to be a part of Portland's emerging maker culture and we couldn't be more thrilled about the upcoming Mini Maker Faire at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. As media sponsors for Portland's Mini Maker Faire and the upcoming World Maker Faire in New York City, we are enthusiastic supporters of the World's Biggest Show and Tell.

So excited for PDX Mini Maker Faire, local crafter can’t sleep at night

Similar to the medieval markets of a well fortified village, craftsmen, artists, builders and people who know the business end of a trebuchet are getting together in just a few weeks to show off their mad skills. Unlike the good old pre-industrial age, though, this faire has a decidedly tech inclination, with robot builders, Arduino programmers, 3D printers and a whole mess of folks who do cool things with LEGO bricks demonstrating what their eclectic organizations and businesses are up to.
