Dundee, Scotland is known as the City of Discovery because of its history of innovation, so it only makes sense that the first Dundee Mini Maker Faire will take place this weekend, on Sunday, November 10, from 10am to 4pm, at the historic Chamber East, as part of the annual Dundee Science Festival. Organizers Erin Hardee and Alexandra Forrest are passionate about promoting hands-on learning, making technology accessible to all, and showcasing the talents of the Dundee maker community. Below is a sampling of the makers who will be exhibiting.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
