Make: Day was a huge success this weekend at the Science Museum of Minnesota. My fingers are crossed that this marks the first of many events where you can take your family to learn about electronics, make robots, meet the makers from your favorite Make: television episodes, interact with radio controlled artwork, and listen to percussion and electronica performed on home-brew instruments while touring a paleontology exhibit.

In a word: awesome.

If you weren’t able to make it to Make: Day, check out the “makeday” tag on Flickr to get a feel for the event. I’m particularly fond of this photo taken by gjohnsonxx. He’s captured evidence of me trying to help someone blast her brother with a vortex of smoke from an air cannon.
