When my team from Make: broke Neon Makey on his way into our Maker Faire booth, we were grief-stricken. Plus, we didn't budget for "We broke it!" Fortunately the original maker is on the scene this weekend as an exhibitor...Can she fix it?
There’s so much to see and do at Maker Faire, and half the fun is being surprised by what you find. However, if you want a plan, here are a few of the education-focused highlights that we're excited about.
The maker movement has been emerging as a powerful vehicle for a renewed appreciation for hands-on learning and the ability to tap deep traditions in craft so we can imagine, produce, and take pride in objects we make ourselves.
