Father’s Day is Make: Day at the Science Museum of Minnesota

This Sunday I’ll be attending Make: Day, a miniature version of a Maker Faire held in the Twin Cities’ fabulous science museum.

This is the second event in what hopefully will be a long series. Last year’s Make: Day was held in part to promote the wonderful maker TV show Make: Television and was organized by Twin Cities Public Television, who produced the show, the Science Museum of Minnesota, as well as us, MAKE Magazine!

This year’s event isn’t promoting anything, except good geeky fun! There will be circuit-bent music, papercraft, rockets, tongue-depressor bombs, stop-motion moviemaking, flamethrowers, robotics and squishy circuits. In addition, our local hackerspace Twin Cities Maker will have a major presence with three locations throughout the museum, including a booth inside, our Spoonapult outside, and a third spot featuring our giant Operation game. Additionally, member Adam will be showing off his Tactile Metronome which was a hit at this year’s Bay Area Maker Faire.

Of course 6/20 is Father’s Day, and the museum hasn’t overlooked this fact. Dads get in free with this handy coupon!

Attending? I’ll be there manning the MAKE booth, so come by and say hi.
