It’s only 10 more days until one of my favorite events of the year, the Maker Faire! It’s described on their website as:
“Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.”
I sometimes tell people that it’s the best place in New York to learn how to pick a lock, make your own PVC spitball guns or enjoy a full-size human mousetrap. Mentos and Diet Coke fountains? Check! Body paint? Oh yes. Build a drone, catch a panel discussion, learn to solder or chochet! Roger That!
You could also stop by the Bust Craftacular area and visit us at the Ink & Sword booth, where we will be enjoying the festivities while offering up our super awesome Stellar Science art prints, greeting cards and some plush robots!
If all else fails, you will at least come away from the event with fun memories, some great photos and you will finally know what the heck Arduino is!
