Humanitarian Makers is a grassroots, global community of makers and humanitarians supporting disaster response. We are in the process of narrowing our focus to enable effective, global engagement. In fall of 2017, we aim to pilot crowd-sourced quality testing of various in-field developed prototypes that are meeting a persistent and/or pressing human need. This will help us understand if this focus provides real value to humanitarians and makers alike. We are “incubated” in Field Ready and together are learning how to effectively support humanitarian hardware prototype development that is appropriate, affordable, available and accessible when and where needed, with a focus on distributed and local manufacturing. As such, we will be delivering a workshop on Quality Testing of In-Field Humanitarian Prototypes at Fab13. This workshop is interactive and hands-on. Participants will hear stories about field engineer efforts to create prototypes in humanitarian settings. Participants will have opportunity to pull from their making experiences to inform how might prototype quality testing be accessible and actionable by the making community and fab lab network (the Q&A). Participants will also be able to walk-through a 3D print of a Field Ready prototype.
