Ann Arbor’s 5th annual Mini Maker Faire is set for tomorrow, June 8, at Washtenaw Community College. The event is free to the public and more than 50 exhibiters are ready to show their stuff.
Among the highlights: Inventor and museum exhibit builder Michael Flynn will bring his newest exhibit, the CloudBean, a giant inflatable mirrored mylar dome.
Also look for presentation from five different speakers who will speak in 20 minute sessions.
Here’s the line-up:
- Noon: Tom Root: Why to Start–or Support–Your Local Makespace
