IEEE Eastern North Carolina members working on their Ken Android project.By their very nature, IEEE members are makers at heart. From Thomas Edison to Millie Dresselhaus, IEEE members are on the forefront of creating tomorrow’s technology for the benefit of humanity. So how is IEEE involved in the Maker Movement? IEEE members and volunteers participate in a wide array of events, activities, and projects including:

  • The World Maker Faire in New York and The Maker Faire Bay Area in California
  • Numerous local Maker and Mini-Maker Faires around the world
  • Hosting their own Maker style events to show off their projects
  • Brainstorming, developing, and executing on projects like: 
    • The East Carolina Section's  “Ken” Android (pictured to the right)
    • The many prosthetic hands programs to help amputees
    • Countless STEM related activities around the world
