Kids arriving to Maker Faire


Friday was Education Day at Maker Faire. While makers were busy setting up their booths, and the Maker Shed was being stocked, groups of students came through the Maker Faire site for workshops and to see the whole weekend preparation come together.

Teachers, parents, and students all came to see great projects, try their hand at building and crafting, and to meet the people whose passion is making things. At the beginning of the day, there were a lot of empty booth spaces. As the day went on, makers, exhibitors, and vendors filled their real estate with projects, set up demonstration spaces, and got their equipment out of the boxes and up and running.

If you came to Education Day, tell us about what you saw, what you did, and what most impressed you.
