Maker Faire @ The Daily Texan –

Part science fair and part carnival, there was something for everyone at Maker Faire, from learning lessons on how to carve a pumpkin to installing speakers into balloons.

Maker Faire is sponsored by MAKE magazine, a project-based publication focused on do-it-yourself and how-to projects. Inventors and enthusiasts from all over the country and people interested in learning a craft traveled to the Travis County Expo Center Saturday and Sunday. In its third year running, this year was the first time the fair left its usual San Mateo, Calif. location.

“We wanted to see what happens when you open the doors of Austin and bring people in to show what they have,” said Dale Dougherty, editor and publisher of MAKE magazine.
