Well, starting this weekend, the Giraffe can be in it’s preferred habitat AND stay home! The first-ever San Diego Mini Maker Faire is this coming Saturday, December 7th from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Maker Faire and MAKE magazine founder Dale Dougherty will presenting at noon; there will be a Nerdy Derby track so you can make and race; maker groups like the San Diego Drone Users Group, the San Diego Robotics Club, the San Diego FabLab, and the San Diego Youth Space Institute will be showing and sharing; electric car conversions and kinetic projects moving around—such as another Maker Faire Bay Area favorite, Unicorn bikes Charlie & Pearl.  Don’t delay!  Get your advance tix (and save!) and see you at the fair!
