This was a first for Kansas City. Dozens of exhibitors displayed a wide variety of science, art, craft, DIY, and maker projects. We had stuff for kids like the paper rocket launch, mini-building blocks, soldering lessons, hacking happy meal toys, beginner robots and more. For big kids we had CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines, an electricity-spitting Tesla coil, a replica working submarine, 3D printers, big rockets, big robots, a cable-climbing space elevator, 3D scanners, a thermal electricity generator and more. The event was held on August 22, 2010 and we’re hoping for an even bigger event next year. Thanks to all the sponsors, exhibitors, businesses and volunteers that made the KC Mini-Maker Faire a success!
In addition to producing the above video, they also assembled a list of each of the presenters at the Faire. If you’re interested in any of the above projects, you can check them out here:
