Project Report | Dec 12, 2023
Academy Camp at Maker Faire Tokyo 2023

Full of enthusiasm for the exhibition

Please find a Japanese version of this report here.

On the weekend of October 14 and 15, 2023, we held our third on-site exhibition at Maker Faire Tokyo. The venue was Tokyo Big Sight in the Tokyo Bay Area. Students from Fukushima, Kanto, and Aichi, including 9 elementary, junior high, and high school students, gathered to display the results of this year's activities of Academy Camp.

This year, with the aid of what is known as generative AI, we created various things. In January's camp, we made picture books; in the February and March camps, we explored how to interact with ChatGPT; in May, we created  serious RPGs (serious games are the games with learning or other purposes beyond entertainment) by prompt engineering; in July, one of our camp's sub-leaders, a technical college student, developed another example of a serious game on Minecraft, a recycling game, which we all played as a test; and in August, we worked on automating book reports in Hakone. At the exhibition, we displayed the picture books, games, and prompts for GPT that were the results of these activities of our participating children.

What makes us proud at Maker Faire is that by wearing the "MAKER" tag, the children are reminded that they are not VISITORS in our society, but MAKERS themselves. We feel that we have had a very fulfilling year. In 2024, we will continue to support the children as they continue to create something as MAKERS.
