For everyone in the San Francisco Bay Area, don’t forget about the East Bay Mini Maker Faire going on this Sunday, October 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Park Day School Campus in Oakland. This Mini Maker Faire was organized by a dedicated group of parents as a fundraiser for their school, and we at MAKE are thrilled to see folks organizing Maker Faires at the community level. There will be over 100 makers and crafters exhibiting, along with a whole day of workshops scheduled, including Maker Faire founder Dale Dougherty showing how to make cider with a cider press and speaking about the Young Makers program, as well as Tim O’Reilly teaching how to make his famous jam and scones. Check out the site for all the details, including an extensive list of makers, and of course how to get tickets.
If you are a teacher, check out the post on Make: Education on how to get discounted tickets.

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.
