We’re organizing a Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, July 10th in Aspen, Colorado in association with the Aspen Ideas Festival. We’ll be at the base of the ski lift in Gondola Plaza from 10am to 3pm. We’re organizing Make activities and fun things to do for families.

We are planning for about a dozen makers to participate. Note that we’ll be outside under tents so things that work well inside under controlled lighting might not work so well here. Rockets, kite-aerial photography, mobile robots and music making should work well.

If you’re a maker in the Rocky Mountain area and like to participate in the Aspen Mini Maker Faire, please contact Kate Rowe (kate at makezine.com). Also, if you’re interested in helping out in other ways, please let Kate know.

I’m looking forward to bringing a little bit of Maker Faire to the Rocky Mountains. If you live or vacation in the area, please stop by and see us on Saturday July 10th.
