Join in the fun June 11 and 12 at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science for the Denver Mini Maker Faire.

You can dance with an Alien who blows glass figures from a fire tube coming out of his helmet. When asked about working with fire so close to his beard, the Alien replied “It’s a good early warning system. Better my beard than my face!”

Write and play a symphony using the motion of your arms and hands.  Serenity Forge has created an interactive game where you draw magical lines on a screen that interact with falling objects to generate music. Watch and listen as the objects bounds around the lines, creating a symphony of sounds that come together like magic.

Lights! Camera! Make! Dototot is bringing a hands-on animation studio for producing short videos using traditional 2D and 3D stop motion animation. What’s the story? That’s for you to decide. Work your movie magic with 3D printed, laser cut, and hand-crafted assets.

Beware of shenanigans at Makerspace Alley! This is the first time we have put these crazy creators in one area filled with their signature creations – play a laser harp, drive the Artemis Bridge, create sound and light patterns in the Sound Puddle, launch your creations into flight in the Bldg 61 wind tunnel, build and race your car at the 3D printed Nerdy Derby!
Bring the stars close to you when you Fly the Planetarium. The planetarium team will be on hand to let you control the stars and universe from an iPad. Or you can run from the Dalek toward the Tardis and travel through time and space with the Doctor!
