The 3rd Annual Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire was fun. Amazing fun! We had a new venue to explore, so it had the same excitement surrounding it as our first Faire.
We had a solid turnout of Makers who shared their projects, products, inventions, art, and ideas. There were a lot of exhibits and activities covering diverse interests. Our Kid’s Area focused on STEAM education tools and included space for interactive play in either the Deconstruction Zone or the Cardboard Construction Area. Visitors could play with a field of glowing delta robots or learn the latest information about drones and robots. Lightning sprung up from a Tesla coil and drummers thundered away at homemade taiko drums.[youtube https://youtu.be/qepzyGUBjdc]
We admired the creative art cars, educated kids and parents about local STEAM programs, played with hardware hacking projects, showcased local businesses, and had a blast doing it.
Thank you to all of the Makers, sponsors, and volunteers who made this event possible!
