LEGO & Arduino for Everyone Ian Rabusseau  
Adding tiny computers to already awesome MOCs! We'll give an introduction to the world of Arduino, along with different ways to integrate with LEGO components. Appropriate for everyone - from beginners to experienced gadget technicians. After the seminar, limited hands-on demonstrations will be available.
 
LEGO Fan Media Roundtable Andrew Bulthaupt  
Daniel Pikora  
Where did the term LEGO Fan Media come from? What does it mean for the LEGO Fan Community? Come join several representatives from a collection of online LEGO fansites, blogs, and (hopefully) more to share stories and answer questions about their combined experience as LFM. The format will be an open roundtable discussion and everyone is encouraged to participate.
 
MOC-tography: How to Photograph LEGO Simon Liu  
Caleb Wagoner  

Want your MOC featured in BrickFair's program guide?  Or just want more attention in general?  Take better pictures!  Learn from a pro!

This seriously educational seminar is two hours long (1 hour presentation, 2nd hour hands-on).  Also, we'll set up a permanent photo area for hands-on practice.  So Simon can offer guidance and assistance throughout the weekend.

This seminar is highly endorsed by BrickFair!  We want you to take better photos of your MOCs :) Join us.


 
Mod Your Curved Train Track Thomas Johnston  
A thin hobby saw, 5 minutes, and LEGO RC curved tracks gives you slightly flexible RC track. Cut two 2/3rds tracks for outer curve double track. Trickier cut and filing makes an RC single crossover switch. Just plate together, or [shudder] glue.
