A Maker Faire is about celebrating learning and doing – not just the finished and perfect end product. It’s a place to show projects, and share what we’re learning with others.
Featuring both established and emerging local “makers,” the East Bay Mini Maker Faire is a family-friendly celebration featuring rockets and robots, digital fabrication, DIY science and technology, urban farming and sustainability, alternative energy, bicycles, unique hand-made crafts, MUSIC and local food, and educational workshops and installations.
All teachers are invited to the 2nd annual East Bay Mini Maker Faire Educator Meet-Up on Sunday, October 18th. Last year 75 educators connected with colleagues and had a chance to see what this “maker” fuss is about.
